I fully agree.
They simply cloned the "idea" behind the .ogg format, ie. making
codec-dependent header parsing in demuxer level.
They should save the original codec header bytes (if any), in 
unmodified form, just like avi, asf, mov and others do, instead
of converting to/from some unified but still codec-dependent thing.

Look at ogg or matroska, whenever a new codec is added, the demuxer
needs lots of changes to handle it...
