    It would be nice to have one container format with lossy or lossless surround sound with effects on a separate track to multi-lingual dialog, optionally with lossy or lossless video in Y, YUV or RGB with 8, 10, 12 or 16 bit depth. Support for unreliable datagram streaming. Support for multiple viewports and/or 360 degree wrap-around flags. Optional color channels with user-defined peak wavelength and spread would be very useful for astronomy or security cameras. Optional transparency channel of 1 bit or more. Optional six-axis meta data. Optional haptic channels. GPS meta-data channel. PCAP meta-data channel. Overlapping hyperlinked areas.
