Not playing noise and looking like a huge fuckup of a media application
when opening a bunch of files that might include unknown file types?
Lots of software is using this to detect whether something is a media
file in the first place, too.

Doesn't help much if legitimate files get a low probe score. AFAIK in
my case this happened mostly because of large ID3v2 tags, which
restricted or even removed any useful media data from the probe buffer.
An API to detect id3 tags (and their size to skip them) would probably
be nice for this.
