Ever tried encoding some 32kbps MP3s just for fun?

Yes, they'd be completely useless...but I'm curious if anyone else has tried this on some of their favorite songs just for the heck of it.

Motivated by a recent discussion here on 32kHz resampled 128 kbps mp3s I did some tests, with problem samples as well as some of my favorite music, with an experimental -V5+ and -V4+ functional extension of 3.99.5z.
IMO it's not absurd at all to use it, but even I who's not sensitive to pre-echo could ABX the restricted temporal resolution on a -V4+ version of a critical non-problem track (Rickie Lee Jones' Under The Boardwalk). However the issue was not very obvious to me, and for people not sensitive to pre-echo this might be a good choice as 32 kHz sampling frequency is good for the quality of tonal parts of the music. Anyway nothing I'd like to use personally.

Not a pointless question at all: some internet radios stream 32kpbs mp3.

... I live by long distance.
