Well, it's possible to put compressed data into the WAV file instead of PCM 
audio data, and set the compression-type format flag to some made-up value, but 
it wouldn't work on any WAV player.

You could use the RIFF format (which I guess is sort of comparable to the OGG 
format) and make up a format identifier like SPXX or something.
