If we find more and more use cases where we disallow @loop, we might as well
completely remove it. You can always do the looping through JavaScript with
direct setting of currentTime.

Depends on how that music is given - if it's a fragment that needs looping,
then it is a use case. But I don't even see @loop giving any advantage over
setting currentTime in script - it won't be more gapless IIUC.
