But what happens when the packet is just missing, not flagged as "error"?

Especially on low datarate PIDs, the chance is very good that no packet
of this pid (even with error) comes in the short period between having a
good stream and having no stream at all...

The CC is then all you have to determine that something is missing, and
this fails about in 1 of 16 cases.
