early this year, we found a fair amount of issues with "derivatives" / files our system makes (like mp3 from flac, etc.) and had to do a massive cleanup campaign on especially our multiple-tracks audio items -- sorting out which were *actually* "original" vs "derivative" (many of our files started getting marked as "original").
so during that cleanup, we rederived many of the items, and removed derivative formats we no longer make (eg: m3u or .zip or 64kbs mp3 files). we still make .zip and .m3u files "on the fly" now/though and have links to that -- so it's mostly the 64kbs mp3 files that noticeably "got gone".
sorry about that -- i understand from your reply below that you preferred them. it's always a tradeoff of "space and demand" for the files we make (for example, unlike youtube's infinite space, we can't make 4+ video derivative files for every uploaded video, etc. -- we have to stick to just 2 (.mp4 and .ogv))
