MKV Header Compression Issues

I’m not sure how I feel about header optimization when it’s a breaking change.  Seems like the kind of thing that you don’t change the spec on mid stream, but maybe that’s just me.    A few weeks ago I updated to the latest mkvtoolnix, which I believe is currently at v4.2.0.
