AFAIK, we already have decoder fallback for audio. We don´t have glitch-free 
fallback because it´s essentially impossible.

And I don´t see why S/PDIF payloaders and PCM decoders could not use the same 
packetizer. In fact, I don´t see why they would use different packetizers at 
all; that seems to contradict the notion of what a packetizer is (and 
reintroduce the chicken-and-egg bug).
