That's just not true. There are two widely used formats for this: m3u, and 
pls. m3u works fine, but is associated with mp3 so people want to avoid it.
pls isn't format-specific, but isn't as widely supported. Why add a third 
one? For wide support, m3u _works_. For a more sensible format, pls also
works, though not as widely. 

If we add a third one, then that'll be _even less_ supported than pls. Why
do this? It makes no sense.
