What about mp2a / mp3a? So mp2v could exist (and not mpg2). Otoh aaca
would look crazy :)

Also I would restrict the available character set from your proposed
ascii-printable to alphanumeric+space, everything else is making it more
complicated. The dash (-) is the only symbol I could be convienced if
too much ppl cry.
