Audio might come out of multi-channel sound cards looking like this - I
thing the mime types should support big numbers even if real apps will
deinterlace audio like this as soon as it gets the chance.

Why the artificial limitations? There is no extra effort with keeping
the definition broad, and it avoids annoying someone in the future who
has wacky mutant requirements.

How about:
  'rate' = 1 - MAXINT (INT) <- sampling rate
  'channels' = 1 - MAXINT (INT) <- number of audio channels
