A feature rarely used by media for a single demux plugin is not a exactly 
motivation for adding a whole new set of APIs that needs to be handled by all 
GUIs, hotkeys, and many LibVLC apps.

We already have 3 different types of seekpoints (seekpoints, chapters and 
titles), at least one type of group of tracks (programs), and of course we 
have ES/tracks. Surely, you both know this?

If it's not any of those things, then you'll need a lot of explanation what it 
is and why this is so badly needed.
