James, Thierry,

Speex and VP8 are codecs and don't by themselves have accessible metadata.
They, however, are not distributed as codec data, but rather inside media

When we talk about Speex in files, it comes in an Ogg container and as such
satisfy your need for a mapping table.

When we talk about VP8 in files, it comes in a WebM container with Vorbis.
Somebody needs to fill in
If nobody is doing it, let me know and I'll make the time to dig it
