What you mean by "but not a resolution change" here? Resolution change
and bit-depth change cannot occur on the same time, or something else.

I would say that for Venus (and probably others) on initialization time
both could be changed on the same time, because we cannot predict the
resolution and bit-depth before parsing bitstream headers.
