Then you need to make this mandatory in the spec. The demux can only
provide informations set by the muxer. In any case libavcodec seems to
work without knowing the size in sample of the coded block so it feels a
little overkill to force that especially if the decoder can find it by
Seek preroll and end trimming will be handled at the demux level
provided for the latter that we have a duration to reduce.
