RAM is the crux. You want to keep all the samples in memory so that they
can play was soon as you press a key without waiting for data from the
disk. But you're absolutely right: Never use lossy formats for
instrument samples.

One use-case for oga (or other lossy formats) is to assign whole songs
per key. ie a rather simple way to trigger background music. In that
case one won't re-encode or re-master the output. Yet the sampler engine
would need to support decoding on the fly (keep the lossy format in mem)
otherwise supporting lossy formats makes indeed no sense.
