FluidSynth should consider implement support for these improvement.

I'm not sure if wave and FLAC files makes much sense for FluidSynth. You would still need some kind of framework to tell how these wave files should be played depending on what note you press and how hard, etc. And the SF2 file format is just such a framework.

As for other frameworks (such as SFZ), I think it would be nice if we could support that. But it would be substantial effort to implement that; hence nobody has attempted it so far. Also, if we would bring more than SF2 in, I'd like more people to chime in as well.
