The ISOBMFF side is followed properly, and nobody cared to test flac until
now with dash manifests. The default code path utilizes the ISOBMFF
identifier for dash manifest entries, which matches things such as
avc/hevc/aac etc.

Not to mention that there doesn't seem to be a spec for the dash manifest
side of things for flac. At all. It just seems to follow the mime type.

So no, this is not the same thing. At all.
