To experiment with recording these you just need to enable recording
those in siparser.cpp, and add them to the video/audio types in 
mpegtables.h StreamID::IsVideo() && StreamID::IsAudio(). However
these don't make much sense, 0xA is already used for the object

I don't know if you will have to make ffmpeg aware of these changes,
and AvFormatDecoder should be ready for this, but may have problems.
