No. Most ppl who want to play MP3 files do not add them as 
audiofiles (-audiofile option ) to a movie, they just play the
mp3 file. In this case -audio-demuxer won't work as it only does
for the first case.

The confusing thing is that -audio-demuxer doesn't specify the
audio demuxer but just the audio demuxer _for the -audiofile 
option_. Yes, it's all described in manpage but you easy 
overlook it. A hint would be good IMHO...
