The iPod meets most of those requirements, except for supporting all the
file formats you list.
Format support is always a toughie. Of the ones
you listed, the iPod supports WMA (unprotected), AAC and MP3. If you
really do have anything in ATRAC, I suggest you convert it to something
else. ATRAC is a dead format and never did have support outside of Sony
