Dan McDonald: one issue with wavs is that there's no such thing as "WAV". You cannot guarantee that all wav files are playable by applications; some apps can play some wav files and not others. Ogg Vorbis, on the other hand, isn't like that (at least theoretically). If your issue with Ogg Vorbis is that it's compressed, then that's reasonable, but I'd suggest that a better default might be FLAC than wav.
