If/when VLC can receive Apple HTTP streams, I expect a dedicated demux will
parse the overloaded M3U8 file, and pass the TS stream to a chained
(stream_Demux*) instance of the TS plugin. So the whole stream will look
like a single item to VLC. Otherwise seeking and continuous streams would
not work.

So that's irrelevant to the life span of 'rate' value.
