[standards-jig] Icon Styles again (JEP-0038)

I was just thinking in terms of how long a sound bit is, so clients can 
decide if it is too large to bother with, but I can see how long to play 
the sound bit is useful, too. However, I don't think it's *that* useful. 
developers of the icon styles should only include what should be used in 
the icon, no more.

Another attribute that may be useful for sounds is bitrate, telling the 
client the quality of the sound bit.

And finally, is the object tag even used for sounds??? In all the 
examples and explanations I saw absolutely no mention of audio files, 
only visual. I'd like to know if the objevt tag is even meant to be used 
for sounds before I 'go generic' right now.
