Think of a presentation (e.g., the example on the RT site)
which might include suitable audio clips either as:
1) background music
2) per page audio sound bite
3) on-demand (e.g. button click) audio information
Also consider the possibility of audio feedback in an O/S neutral
manner, such as alerts to signal completion of a long-running
process, receipt of a new message, timeout on an error dialogue
to which the user has not responded in a timely manner, etc.
It seems reasonable to consider MP3 as a "generic" audio format
for use an *any* situation requiring audible signals/information
by analogy with the fact that JPEG and PNG are "generic" graphic
formats that can be used in any situation requiring non-text
display of information (whether charts, photos, or just eye
