There is a similar notice in the wiki, which I did not integrate in
the registration proposal.

"apps that identify a logical bitstream which they cannot decode
SHOULD ignore it but MAY still decode the ones they can"

This is only in "application/ogg", though.  Should I integrate it in
the registration proposal?  And if yes, only in application, or also
in video and audio?

Actually, I think it may integrate well in the "Encoding
Considerations" section, which applies to the three media types.

There's the RTP/Oggless media types to do next.  I'm already feeling
excited about it.
