Mime types just suck for media stuff... mp3 is audio/mpeg, wma would
probably be something like video/x-msvideo. But most of the times,
multimedia files are (mp3, vorbis, ...) bitstream embedded in a
container (ogg, mov/quicktime, ...). And when you ask for the mime type
of a file, you get the mime type corresponding to the container (eg
application/x-ogg for ogg/vorbis iirc). And the mime type of the
container is not enough to know if your mp3 player can playback the file
or not. So using mime types will probably not be enough for "complex"
file formats.

Hopefully I'm making sense, Benjamin will correct me if what I'm saying
is plain wrong anyway :p
