The idea of the frequency_list_descriptor is that the receiver tries _all_
frequencies and decides which one it gets the best signal from.

Actually, I think it should work the other way around: When a receiver
scans for multiplexes, and scans all frequencies, it might find the same
contents from several transmitters. The frequency_list_descriptor allows
the receiver to identify which multiplexes carry the same contents, so that
it can then select the multiplex with the best signal.
