 None of your input subtitle streams is marked as default, current FFmpeg
 therefore does not write the default flag for any of the subtitle tracks.
 The Matroska specification -
 http://matroska.org/technical/specs/index.html (search for FlagDefault) -
 specifies that the value for the default flag is "default" if nothing is
 specified, the demuxer therefore marks all subtitle tracks as "default".

 What is missing afaict is a possibility for the user to mark streams as
 default streams, an alternative is to always set the first stream as
 default in the Matroska muxer, I am not completely convinced that this is
 the best solution, consider sending a patch if that is what you want.
