I don't know of anything formal.  If you just need a place to put a problem
sample temporarily, I'm willing to hold them on my box's webserver.  It's on
nearly all the time and has quite a bit of bandwidth.

If people need to do this, stop by #vorbis on irc.openprojects.net and look
for me (volsung).  You can /dcc the sample to me there.

In the long run, it would be neat if we had a bugzilla-like system for
tracking samples.  But someone would have to write it.  Volunteers?

I have no idea about this.  So far, people have just been sending short
samples to Monty mostly.  He's not putting them on Napster, so I don't think
anyone has worried about the legal issues.  :)
