Why are 128kbit/s MP3s usually 44,100 Hz?

Since 128kbit/s MP3s usually has a low-pass filter at 16,000 Hz, and the Nyquist-Shannon theorem states that all frequencies under f/2 Hz can be totally described at an f Hz sampling rate, why not encode at 32,000 Hz? Wouldn't it save more space?

The problem is - how exactly do you resample a 44.1kHz signal to 32kHz so that you preserve everything up to 15999Hz perfectly?
