Thank you.  We spent a good couple of months discussing possible
solutions to make a distinction between different content on Ogg, and
ultimately this one was accepted and refined to its current form.

While currently the concept of Ogg applications with multiple signals
or even actual scrippted applications is not a common sight, we hope
the situation will change in the future as complex Ogg applications
become mainstream in the scientific community (among other audiences).

However, you raised a valid point, and if this is also the opinion of
other members of this list, then we will consider changing that bit in
the application/ogg section.
