I think hAlbum is necessary if we want to keep the simplicity of hAudio.

hAudio is used to describe individual recordings.

hAlbum is used to describe a collection of hAudios that are released as
an album (CD, LP, collection of songs, etc.)

We only gain complexity if we combine the two. It will also be easier to
discuss each as separate concepts. If we decide to merge them after we
have all of the concepts of hAlbum sorted out, we can definitely do that.

We don't necessarily know what the hAlbum beast looks like yet, so I'd
rather keep discussion separate for now. There will be time and effort
put towards merging the two in the future if it makes sense. This is an
attempt to solve a smaller problem first (hAlbum).
