Actually there's a standard for audio since Microsoft needed it to let
Windows have at least some basic sound support when there aren't any
proper sound drivers installed yet. No idea where's the documentation
for it though.

There are also other standards that evolved over time for the same
reason - mainly because manufacturers got tired of being compatible
with the SoundBlaster 16 :P
