MP3 is used in many more venues than just piracy of copyrighted works.  Many 
internet radio streams are MP3 (shoutcast and icecast both support mp3 
streaming).  RHL 9 can't play those streams.  Well, actually, it can't play 
Real streams, either; or Windows Media streams either....

I often receive public service announcements for the radio station in MP3 form 
via e-mail.  It's a drag to have to reboot to use Cool Edit Pro to unrip to 
wav for the automation system (which has a couple hundred gig of wav's for 
the air signal).
