Because, wav2swf produces an SWF file that contains *audio data only*, nothing 

I see no reason why one could not add a command switch to wrap this audio data 
a player swf.  This can be done using swfcombine.  That was what I suggested, 
there is some code flying this way shortly as an example.

As an aside to your comment..

A kettle boils water, right?  It doesn't make tea or coffee. There is no reason
however why you can't wrap a kettle in something else, to make it do just that
extra task.  Then of course it becomes a completely different entity, as changes
it's name to a Teasmaid, or a Coffee Percolator!

Have I made my point clearly enough? ;o)
