It seems I found the link [1] where Alex, Joe and Karl discussed this 
provider, but for some unknown reason WaveFloatFileWriter.java was not 
added to the list of service providers as it was suggested [2].

Note that we still have no support of WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE, because 
WaveExtensibleFileReader.java is not in the list of service providers as 
well. If nobody objects I will create a new CR and add support of this 
format. And then later I will try to merge these providers, but actually 
after this functionality will be enabled in the jdk.
