I think this is a good idea.

However, perhaps it would be helpful to document in the manual how to roll your own streams.emms type playlist as this is not obvious (at least to me!).

I've given it some thought and decided on a new course of action. I'm
going to throw this idea out for comment for one month before
implementing it:

    * The entire emms-streams.el file and the associated mode will be
      removed completely from Emms.

    * A trimmed down, native-format playlist file called streams.emms
      will be included in the `lisp' directory (it is technically a Lisp

    * The Emms manual will advise that Emms comes with a small selection
      of online streaming stations which can be loaded with `M-x
      emms-add-playlist .../lisp/streams.emms'.

    * The command `M-x emms-streams' will display a message to the
      effect that the feature has been removed, and point to the
      relevant text in the manual. This will persist for the duration of
      a single point release (that is, six months.) Then the M-x
      emms-streams command will be removed.
