I've added these now. I've made sure all tables containing file names
and extensions are more consistent. These include:

* Reserved File Names Table
* Default Icons Table
* Default Start Files Table
* Media Type Identification Table
* File Identification Table

These changes are all editorial.

I've made it so there is only one file extension per row. That should
remove the ambiguity.
These changes are all editorial.

I could not find a formal IANA registration for WAVE files, which is
why I thought audio/x-wav would be more appropriate. WDYT?

Sorry, by "mentioning the format" do you mean a link to the
specification that defines the format?
