Codec developers and users (not counting r1pp3rz), mainly.  The
increased complexity over MPEG2 is often too large compared to the
quality improvement.  For instance, including a loop filter would have
added little to the complexity, and could have significantly improved
the quality.

I've never noticed that problem with matroska.  My main complaint
about matroska is that it is overly complex.  Implementing a fully
featured demuxer is a major piece of work.
