Was there a specific reason for this? Are there known problems with the FLAC coded option and should we avoid it, or is it just for bandwidth/cpu reasons?

Some people mentioned stuttering when using flac. I guess this was about network issues, like bandwidth limitations. So I choosed mp3 over flac because of much lower bandwidth requirements to give people the best default experience. If your network can handle flac there is nothing wrong with it.
