Quite. I think Monty intends them to work with theora though. In his
defense, all that means is conforming players aren't required to handle
them , and for the generally intended purpose, the restriction is
Doesn't mean players are required to not handle them, so if you have a
specialized application where multiplexed vorbis audio mixed by the
decoder makes sense, go ahead.
Where the spec *is* broken is that it allows decoders to choke on any
multiplexed stream, rather than making a best effort. This should be
changed for vorbis 1.1.
