So there is one SPS and one PPS (with the patch). It does not prove 
that a given slice uses the one PPS, nor does it prove that the one PPS 
uses the one SPS. And it obviously does not prove that the data within 
the slices, PPS and SPS are compatible.

In other words, if your decoder crashes on invalid or incomplete 
streams, you decoder crashes. You cannot work around it (other than by 
not using it at all).
