Please note that "Baseline" (may) contains many features 
that are not supported by any H264 decoder while 
"Constrained Baseline" was defined later to define the 
actual Baseline features, as users (decoders) always 
expected them.

Or in other words: "Constrained baseline" is what you 
would expect from "Baseline" (which is something else 
that you certainly don't want to use).
