Totally serious!

If (when :) we agree on an "audio" extension, such as ".oga" for
anything audio inside Ogg which an audio player (SW) should be able to
decode, then that's future-proof.

Of course, if the player hasn't got support for the codec yet, then
that's a totally different issue and the player needs to have a means
to find and install support for the codec. But at least the right
application gets started, i.e. a audio player rather than a video
