Format sniffing is certainly problematic in general, but this usage is for the
constricted context of loading audio data.

All the commonly expected audio formats and containers have uniquely
identifiable headers containing full data format descriptions. The
audio-related MIME types really provide no useful information beyond hinting at
the type of header a format parser should initially expect.
