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.
