From: Kenneth Klette Jonassen <kenneth@bridgetech.tv>

ST 302:2007 is the latest iteration of the transport specification
and replaces the older SMPTE 302M name. To avoid possible end-user
confusion, we'll update the description in source code comments only.

Fill in a few important pieces of the bitstream documentation that is
specific to ST 302, so that it is possible to understand the decoder
without access to the ST 302 spec (which is behind a paywall).
