Comment (by rmk):

 While I believe you that this is true I thought ffmpeg had the policy of
 supporting files not in compliance with a certain spec at least on a case-
 by-case basis, provided they are out there in the wild and not from a
 crazy source (and maybe only when -strict experimental is set, which I
 thought it was for). A categorical decision like this means that people
 will have to use other tools (e.g. ffmbc can do it) when they want to
 create files like the one created by one of the most popular professional
 cameras. is the policy to only support decoding for those files? Anyway,
 of course it's the project developers' decision, fair enough. Should I
 need it, I can maintain a private patch. Just ran into it and thought I'd
 report it.
