Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Could you elaborate on how you envisage this working? Would it treat
these errors as fatal and continue down the source list? Or...?

There's a note in the spec saying that in a future version an event will be
fired in this case to allow scripts to make the UA use another source file,
would that be enough?

Alternatively, would you just want it to be possible for the UA to consider
certain substreams as "required", such that if it can't play those streams, it
can offer the user the option of trying another?
