To be clear, the referenced MPTF document actually describes two alternate
solutions, both of which were discussed at the F2F. Option A is the same as in
the original bug report. Option B is a more general alternative solution.

Option A: Define two new Category values:
   "main+description" - pre-mixed main audio track and audio descriptions
   "translation+description" - pre-mixed translated audio track and audio
descriptions

Option B: Make Category a list, allowing other combinations (e.g. video with
main and sign)

Coincidentally, the W3C just posted a promotional video that includes a version
with descriptive audio in the currently unsupported pre-mixed format,
illustrating the need for this bug to be fixed:
