For the most part the top-level boxes we are allowing are self-contained and
aren't really effected by the append behavior.

Things like this are exactly what I am worried about because it could
potentially cause a change in UA behavior. MSE can't really make any assumption
about whether these checksums are correct because the application may decide to
not append all the top-level boxes that may be included in the checksum. It
could make this decision w/o even knowing that the checksum boxes are present
in the stream. If you really want checksum validation, then this should be
called out in the spec text and the behavior for validation failures should be
clearly defined.
