There are three usecases for adding EPG-Data:

1. Using EIT-EPG as it is
2. Adding Information to existing EIT-EPG and setting table id to 0 to 
prevent overwrites of the new Information (often only Shorttext)
3. Adding complete new EPG from other sources and prevent EIT-EPG to 
fill tables with noepg-patch

With your proposed solution, i'm not able to add informations to 
existing events, cause i cannot tag the event with table id 0 to prevent 
overwrites, instead tagging with table id 0 will stop adding EIT-EPG.

It would be nice, to have a solution where all three usecases are 
usable. Today we only have two, with the ugly noepg-patch all of them.

Or, we just set te tableid to -1 (if thats possible) to indicate "stop 
adding EIT-EPG", 0 "stop overwrite event", >0 "do what you want"
