It seems to me that, ignoring any formal process issues, what we want is for
UAs to honour codecs="" on all the types they support. Given that, I don't
really see a problem with including the examples as is. Now if it happens that
this conflicts with some other definitions, we should either update those
definitions or mention the violation in the spec, but we shouldn't pick an
inferior solution because of process.

Does anyone care enough about process to fix the process issue (e.g. by
registering this parameter on all video and audio types)?

The application/octet-stream thing is a separate issue.
