Here in Finland visual impaired commentary is marked correctly using
that field (additionally it has the country code "hun").
Also, somewhat relatedly, some channels (eurosport mainly, at least when
I last checked) are broadcast with mono audio encoded as 2 channels of a
single stream and therefore there are multiple language tags present per
I had some patches handling both the type field and multiple lang tags
in "Handling dual language mono audio encoded as stereo" thread earlier
this year (Feb and Jul), but I haven't had the time to revisit and
finish them (I plan to, but I won't make any promises; maybe after all
this dts/spdif stuff).
