But one can also have DISCONT without having a new stream or segment.
Furthermore, the semantics of DISCONT on a sparse stream are a bit shady in
that (almost) every subsequent buffer is possibly discontinuous w.r.t. previous
one. And even otherwise, it is not clear/certain that a plugin's
response/actions when about to deal with a (really) new segment (exactly) match
those that are appropriate for a (minor?) stream discontinuity. The former
might involve finishing up some delayed stuff from current segment, the latter
might involve discarding such anyway (?)
