Some of the issues with these media formats is the licensing on the 
format itself. For example, you want MP3 support, but using MP3 requires 
licensing from a company to use it. Blender is strictly in the GPL 
branch of open source licenses (see more here: 
https://www.blender.org/about/license/) and does not package software 
that does not meet the same or a looser (Apache, for example) license.
