Think about palettes in AVI - they are rather codec-agnostic. I think
it's better to pass palettes as separate packets that can be handled
by generic frame decoding function without bothering codec itself
unless the codec-demuxer relationship is very tight (i.e. like
Interplay video or Smacker, etc.) and it can be always sent in frame
