From: Niklas Haas <git@haasn.dev>

The code was written under the misguided assumption that these fields
would only be present when the value changes, however this does not
match the actual patent specification, which says that streams are
required to either always signal this metadata, or never signal it.

That said, the specification does not really clarify what the defaults
of these fields should be in the event that this metadata is missing, so
without any sample file or other reference I don't wish to hazard
a guess at how to interpret these fields.

Fix the current behavior by making sure we always throw this error, even
for files that have the vdr sequence info in one frame but are missing
it in the next frame.
