Hi Dean.

I started to get all excited about uFormats after ETech, had a wee
project all lined up that would benefit hugely from them.... then got
swamped at work, and never had time to see it through.

I whole-heartedly wanted to attack the Artist/Release/Track model for
"Popular" music.  You can see my original post on the matter here:

My intention at the time was to do something based off-of
MusicBrainz's MMD format --

Other thoughts included incorporating playlists in web pages by
combining this and XOXO.

The main complexity I saw would be the nesting.  A track can be by an
artist.  An artist can record tracks.  An artist can have albums that
contain tracks.  A track can be on several albums.

Any questions, feel free to ping me.
