In my opinion this is a silly request.

capable of doing this anyway.

Currently I'd recommend .pls files.  Adding yet another stupid
playlist format that we'd have to try to get adopted seems a bit silly
to me.

It would also prevent ogg from 'just working' in most environments.  

I'm not sure what an acceptable solution would be.  I'm not sure that
one is really possible with current browsers.

Once there is a directory, then this because an easier issue to solve
for either scenario.   But right now people should be using .pls, since
no players support it any other way, and aren't likely to anytime soon.
