Big problem with mp3 is license - if you add mp3 support to your product, you 
have to ask user to accept separate agreement (during installation).
I believe jdk7 will have ogg support, but it will be implemented in different 
package (not JavaSound) and JavaSound will have FormatConversionProvider bridge 
to the codec.
