If the library is small you can just turn off the "browser" (which is
unneeded and would most likely show 1 or 2 genres, only 1 or 2 artists, and
a handful of albums).  So I don't think that having it show up as a library
rather than a playlist is a problem directly.  The only difficulty I can see
is that the order of songs is probably important to the user but you can't
reorder songs in a library (contrary to what you can do with a playlist).

In any case I see your point when it comes to 32MB players, but my 1GB flash
player holds 30 hours of 64kb/s songs, so managing it as a playlist
doesn't make much sense.
