VdpBitstreamBuffer content guarantees
Is a VdpBitstreamBuffer guaranteed to contain an entire slice, or does the decoder have to keep track of state and support decoding a slice across multiple buffers and/or decoding multiple slices from a single buffer?

I'm hoping for the former, but if it's the latter does the buffer have to contain complete fields at least, or can a field cross buffers? (By field I mean some multi-bit element from the bitstream of whatever format is being decoded, not an interlaced field or anything like that.)

Re: VdpBitstreamBuffer content guarantees
No, buffer content is completely arbitrary. It's legal, but silly, to have a separate buffer per byte in the bitstream.
