The goal with hAudio, hImage and hVideo (hMedia in general) has been to
embed them in other Microformats such as hAtom, hReview, and hProduct.

As far as hReview is concerned, the current approach is to embed the
information in the hReview DESCRIPTION field.

Thus, if you are doing a review about an album, you would include the
hAudio markup of the album in the DESCRIPTION field of the hReview.

Does that address your concern?
