I mean it appears as if Matroska does not support it, 
so why are you trying? (Even if we found out that this 
is a limitation of FFmpeg and not the Matroska 
specification, it may not be fixed quickly.)

(As you found out.)

Which may indicate that the Matroska specification 
does not support anything else.
(I don't know and it does not sound entirely correct 
to me but in any case, a patch has to be written.)
