I don't know. On the one hand it is useful, but it is stupid because
other formats will write it in their metadata.
Actually even the matroska muxer (if it supports/supported arbitrary metadata)
would write "doctype" literally into the new file when remuxing, which
does seem like not quite the intended behaviour...
