I would also prefer decodeAudioData to accept a non-optional mimeType argument, and I think we raise an error if the mimeType argument is not supported by the engine.  The reason that I would advocate for this change is that the audio codecs supported by each engine (potentially on each platform) is different, and that makes sniffing even worse than it already is.
