Experimental isn't a consistent distribution.
Packages from experimental don't necessarily build with all the other
packages from experimental. I think the culprit here is rather the API
mismatch between libebml (1.0.0 already in exp.) and libmatroska
(1.0.0 targeted at exp. currently waiting in NEW), which isn't vlc's

Nothing keeps vlc from entering experimental as long as its
build-dependencies are satisfied in unstable.
