Having removed everything else in these sections, I figured there wasn't
that much value in requiring PCM-in-Wave support. However, I will continue
to work with browser vendors directly and try to get a common codec at
least for audio, even if that is just PCM-in-Wave.

Unfortunately, the reasons don't really matter at the end of the day. If
they don't implement it, they don't implement it. :-(
