Well, structured audio, or just multitrack + mixdown metadata would do
the trick, but realistically, that only really works if you author
specifically for that format.
Also, as soon as you want any non-trivial processing in addition to
the mixing, you either have to apply that destructively to the
tracks, or you run into CPU load issues in players, problems finding
effect implementations that you can legally include in your files
It's definitely doable (the technology is there already) and very
interesting, but I doubt it'll ever replace plain, "opaque" streams
as a general music distribution format.
