to embed lossless deltas for each packet.
The opus specification is quite intentionally not bit exact, and the decoder gives slightly different output on different systems and different versions of the decoder.
And how to losslessly encode 44.1 kHz audio?
When I came up with this idea, my primary use case was movies. With that said, I can't say that I really care about encoding 44.1 kHz audio. Is my idea worthless without this feature?
Compatibility with existing Opus decoders.

mp3HD can't go beyond stereo and 16-bit. I'm also unaware of any lossless extensions for AAC.
And I do care about patents because this isn't just about me. I would also like for others to be able to use this, as well.
There are actually lossless extensions for both, but aren't you planning to implement your own system? Who cares what already exists?Realistically the number of people who would ever use something like this is so small you will never attract enough attention for patent licensing to matter.
There are no existing hybrid lossless decoders for Opus, so if your goal is to be compatible with an existing lossless implementation...
I also missed the part above where this proposition will mess up seeking. I'm hoping someone can explain why. That seems more like a container issue to me.
we have a messy new extension that saves us only 7% compared to just carrying two sets of files.
