Yes I am, too many fn's in the current haudio proposal, fn in hcard is
fine, fn in an item that's good too but for the main title seems
inaccurate and halfhearted.

maybe this discussion should be moved to microformats-new for further
discussion?, I am in favour of re-using entry-title from hAtom or
something with similar semantics like audio-title. I don't fancy
re-opening the can-of-worms discussion about re-using "title"...
although it may be an interesting discussion.
