Are we looking at the same examples page?

That's funny... that's exactly what we said about hAudio... "we'll start
with hAudio and generalize upward to albums, podcasts and playlists."

The hAudio Microformat is meant to be "delivery/container mechanism"
agnostic. hAudio is supposed to be encapsulated by the delivery
mechanism, be it a playlist, album, podcast, media or other such container.

What is your definition for a playlist? I think we have different
definitions. Do you mean "A list of playable audio objects."?
