Can I ask why are smaller SoundFonts are even a need in this day of age? I 
mean, it's NICE to compress data, but isn't this a whole lot of worry and work 
for minimal - even useless - benefit?

The other observation I have is that PLEASE if anyone is going to fiddle with 
the SoundFont format and make some unofficial v3 or v4, administrate it with 
lots of authority and a heavy hand. And it seems to me that having to have a v4 
just means that v3 was done half-baked. One of the great things about the 
SoundFont spec/format is that a parser can accept or reject opcodes it either 
doesn't understand or aren't written correctly, thus allowing addition of 
features without breaking current loaders ability to load them.
