Yes, thats a point.

Priest, Priest, Priest!

Oh, by the way - I tried a metal track (Judas Priest - Bullet Train)
with MP3pro at 64 KBit/s. Better than "traditional" MP3 but
SBR seems to intruduce additional artifacts - guitars are
heavily distorted ("crackling" sound, very rough).

MP3pro at 64 KBit/s sounds equal to a (good) 96 KBit/s MP3 coding.
MP3pro at 96 KBit/s could be equal to 128 KBit/s MP3 - Vorbis
does so, too. So I am not afraid that MP3pro could be something
like a "Vorbis-Killer". :-)
