What's the meaning of "sample rate" in MP3/Vorbis/AAC? Wouldn't it be meaningless after transform, same as bit depth?

fs is part of the MDCT equation. If you didn't know the sample rate, you wouldn't be able to decode the audio. Like others have said, you can decode easily to sample rates that are multiples, but you cannot decode to arbitrary sample rates without resampling.
