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

Newer codecs (AAC, Vorbis) are more robust in every way, they've got a better quality-to-filesize ratio. The only reason people still use MP3 is because it's compatible with everything and will play everywhere.

When you go to free-format, you've broken that compatibility, and there's no reason anymore to stay locked in to MP3. Might as well go to better codecs if you're going to break that compatibility. So there's very little incentive for anyone to improve upon freeformat encoding.

Besides, I've got some FLACs that weigh in at under 640 kb/s.
