Wrong assert(0) in decoder

Function TDecTop::decode has an assert(0) if it encounters NAL unit of reserved or unspecified types. But specification requires decoder to ignore such NAL units:

"For purposes other than determining the amount of data in the decoding units of the bitstream (as specified in Annex C), decoders shall ignore (remove from the bitstream and discard) the contents of all NAL units that use reserved values of nal_unit_type."

That's basically test code which can indeed be removed. We also had this for a few NAL unit types that were not implemented before (see #1265). I guess, it would be nice to print a warning that something "unknown" was seen by the decoder.
