In what setting are you thinking about playback? If this is a lab setting,
creating a small batch script to fetch the samplerate tag and passing it to
a playback program like ffplay doesn't seem a very big deal? If you want
playback on current existing, available hardware, augmenting the spec is
not going to work.
