Hmmm... I ran it on Safari 1.2.1 on Mac OSX 10.3.3. In other words,
the latest stuff.

I got the "broken quicktime" icon for both WAV and MP3 (same thing as I
see with an unsupported codec and the like). However, if I save the
files that the browser does not launch, then click on them in Finder,
iTunes launches and plays the sound files. I might be tempted to think
it's a MIME type issue, but the fact it knew to try Quicktime at all
kinda argues against that.

I wouldn't worry much about the issue. I'm sure it works for most
people; and it works for me if I take a couple extra steps. As a demo
of what the system does, it's very useful.
