so, apparently this is possible with "private streams".
but i don't think you'd want to do that. what would be the benefit to a normal flac file?

You can use Apple Lossless (ALAC). How to "get" those? Rip your audio CDs and encode to ALAC.

To the OP, is this purely for audio reasons or for an MP4 video? If video you're better using mkv as it supports far more audio formats I think. Default audio in MP4 has to be AAC I believe. Certainly, players like Quicktime won't do audio with MP4 that isn't AAC that I've noticed.

Putting unusual formats into containers they aren't typically used with is usually a bad idea even if it can be done.
