Is it too late to change the format/structure of the Encoder Info block? It was suggested that it could be useful to store more information about the --quality setting used for encoding. The original poster wanted to store two decimal places but that would take at least 10 bits. However, using 7 bits (the 4 currently used as well as the 3 unused bits) we could store one decimal place and still keep the Encoder Info block at 32 bits.

That way we could save --quality 0.0 - 10.0 and still have some room for some reserved/experimental settings.
I've seen it, and plan to do as you said. Just need to change the spec (and the code). Don't worry about the changes in the spec, everything can still be changed.
