Bjartur, real-time streaming audio uploads enable pronunciation assessment
for language instruction during multiplayer online roleplaying games such as
those by http://www.8dworld.com

input type=file accept="audio/x-speex;quality=(0-10);bitrate=..." is more
important, and accept="audio/ogg video/x-webm, video/ogg" are all fairly
important, too.

I´ve searched the archives, read a thread, Googled around and read a
document on the subject, but still I haven´t found a use case for it
other than it is going to magically increase user privacy.

<input type=file accept="audio/*"> is a standard and compatible way to
request audio stream(s). I can´t see any drawbacks to using <input>
for audiovisual streams at least.
