This has not changed and is unlikely to change in the future. Theora has a big header that must be received before any data is decoded. Resending it regularly like it could be done like we now do for H.264 SPS/PPS, but it is not convenient because it is quite big and will use too much bandwidth. So it is really better sent in a reliable mechanism.
