For v1.2 we are going to support wav in Music app, besides adding *.wav to /toolkit/content/, we also need to enhance the metadata parser to be able to parse metadata from wav files.

I just tested and found music(1) can list the .wav sound file in playlist.
After talking to PM. It is not necessary to parse WAV format in v1.2 now. For now, gecko already support WAV format to play the music. Change to koi? and remove the block for 894853 (Core music player to parse WAV file format).
No longer blocks: 894853

Maybe we should WONTFIX this. Especially since we already support FLAC, WAV is just a bad choice to use for music. I don't have an issue with letting the music app *play* WAV files (especially in the open activity), but I think the maintenance burden of a metadata format for a file type that we almost never see isn't worth it.

After discussing this with the other music developers, we've agreed that we should WONTFIX this, at least for the time being. In the future, it might be worth revisiting this, however.
