I would prefer that it is removed and added back in the future if needed
(I think it's not since it's not used with VP8 either).

If we let it, people will read our code as a reference and assume/wonder
if VP9 uses extradata.

BTW I had copied the b_pts_only option from VP8 as I assumed the 2
formats would have been similar.

Where should we check to be sure about those 2 issues ?

Google produced MKVs?
