Although I'm not against the idea, I just can't see it would really add 
much.  I'm sure mp3 format isn't limiting the listener base for one 
thing :).  Also, if it's about the quality increase, then up-converting 
the mp3's wont get you there..  Quality could be gained if it's required 
to upload a recording in a higher bitrate or lossless format that would 
be down converted to both mp3 and ogg.  If converting from one to the 
other at a similar bit rate, you'll get the artifacts of both formats 
instead of just the one.  It's worth noting though, that converting from 
ogg to mp3 would be the ideal direction assuming the same bit rate on each.
