FLAC and Wavpack (likely others too) use error detection codes for uncompressed audio data.
Why not for compressed?

I could find only 2 differences:
-you have to decompress the data to verify correctness, which (sometimes greatly) reduces verification performance
-you have more data to be checksumed, which slightly reduces compression / verification performance

What am I missing?

Silent data corruption.
I verify my music collection once in a while. I had to resign from using WavPack because it took way too long.
I'm considering switching to TAK as soon as there's 2.0, but I'm wondering if verification time won't make it inapplicable too.
