This is purely for curiosity's sake...off the top of my head I can't imagine any practical application for such a format.

In theory, it could be VBR if it's packed inside another container format such as MP4, AVI, MKA, etc. However, such a scheme would be non-standard and would require modifications to existing decoders to play properly

Isn't it mp3 stream in mp4 container a standard? I thought so...

It is. But for such a scheme to work, decoders would have to rely on the size stored for each "sample" (packet) in the MP4 mdat, rather than trying to parse it from the MP3 header. I'm not aware of any MP3 decoder APIs that are capable of this, although it would be trivial to add.
