MP4 files are specified by a standard. If a player can not handle some file
adhering to that standard, that is its fault. Bugs in third-party software
should not restrict FFmpeg users from creating valid files they want, and it
is not FFmpeg's task to document third party's bugs.

FFmpeg may document a well known bug in a well known third party software,
but this this would be a service offered as a convenience, not a duty.
