This not a simple solution. The information about what the format is capable
of is new. It was NOT available when the TS was being written.

Also, the simple 'plaintext_length' is not good enough.  It also has to do
with encodings, with 'garbage' data that causes 'broken' encodings, etc.

Yes, the simple changes are on my todo list (know and 'honor' the plaintext
length.   But that is not the final solution.
