I was going to say the same thing.  The RIAA seems to have taken the  
peak in CD sales -- during the period when people were still  
replacing their LP collections -- as a sustainable sales figure, and  
assumes that any difference between that and current sales represents  

Attempts to create a new physical CD replacement format, to get  
everyone to buy all their music a third time, have pretty well  
failed.  SACD, for example, didn't catch on with anyone except  
hardcore audiophiles.
