I would also be good to ressurect the page called
NamespacesChickenLittling, of which I can see no trace but is referred
to in "vote-links-faq" i.e. "For followup Q&A about VoteLinks and
namespaces, see NamespacesChickenLittling".
this could probably cover the hAudio namespace useage also.
p.s. I'm not sure namespaces can be said to have failed when
http://microformats.org has two of them..
