I have no idea how widely used this feature is, but it is mentioned in
Extract a chapter from a DVD VOB file (start and end sectors obtained
externally and multiplied by 2048):
@end example

Play an AVI file directly from a TAR archive:
@end example

So at least this documentation would need updating.

Also mentioning this in the Changelog/RELEASE_NOTES would be good.

Best regards,
