Since there are many audio formats, relying on MP3 bitrate only is foolish.

You should still add .mpc, however, if you get the time. And since foobar developers have dropped official ape support due to stability issues/lack of development on the original lib, that can be safely omitted.
On the other hand foo_shn is coming along nicely.
