For a certain definition of correct.
You are assuming that the correct audio track is the one that matches the
audio language preferences. There is a reason why this can normally be
selected in the UI; it's not as simple as that. For instance, many people
prefer the original audio track with subtitles over dubbing.
Any VLC user who's had the problem before will have become used to having the
first track and you are changing this. From that point of view, your patch is a
regression. If this feature is of any significance, someone will find it and
complain. As the default owner of the network input bugs, I do not fancy that
Besides, you said you would fix MMS bugs, and at the same time, you already
insists on not fixing this one. How am I supposed to trust you then?
