well, iPods can play any format that iTunes can, so that includes .wav, .aiff, and apple lossless. totally suitable formats! i don't think he honestly cares what format people keep their music in.
to add to that, he's trying to get labels to go in on the iTunes+ sales- higher bitrates and no DRM.

(oh yeah, and iTunes doesn't actually sell mp3s anyway! haha. it's AAC.)

anyway, if you don't like iTunes' format, sell some widely-playable yet high-quality files from your own site! or other digital download sites.
