Not included in Ubuntu Studio because it cannot be included in the archives because the license is GPL-3 with a special "commercial exception". For more information see this IRC log starting at 14:21.
Audacious is included rather than Rhythmbox or other media players because Audacious allows you to open and play a single file rather than maintain a library.
This is advantageous when creating a new mix of a song and you want to listen to the new mix easily.
