David,

is there an inherent or natural reason that current browsers don't  
play any audio formats natively?

bearing in mind that the original browsers did not display images,  
and the next generation didn't use "plugins" to display images.

cheers

Once you start using plugins you have left the scope of W3C  
regulation and you have decided to enter an essentially unregulated  
market.

In practical terms, plugins are quite likely to completely bypass the  
browser when generating sound.
