Why would you want to convert lossy AC-3 to FLAC? Anyway AC-3 files can be decoded fine using Foobar2000, either by downmixing on-the-fly or not.
Oh, so AC3 is not just another type of WAV? Like it's actually something like mp3?

Like it's actually something like mp3?That’s correct; AC3 is a lossy, compressed format much like MP3.The stereo PCM track should be both lossless and uncompressed (like WAV). You’ll see a (size) benefit if you compress that with FLAC.
Audio DVDs use Meridian Lossless Packing exclusively, which is lossless as long as the bitrate stays under legal limit for DVD.
The bitrate limit for DVD is near 10 MBit/s.
Audio CD always runs at single speed and does not allow any logical structure variations. Audio gets all the space, shared equally between both channels.I don't know if its obligatory to put real or at least dummy video_ts structure on every audio DVD. Actual albums I've seen always had two copies of the data, one as audio standard VOBs, and one video standard.
