In a very generic sense, I see where you're going, Martin.

However, keep in mind that what you've marked up is really a formatted
name. The sound markup is meant for "audio samples". hAudio has already
solved that problem in a more semantically compact and accurate way (by
using rel="sample", rel="enclosure", and rel="payment").

For solving the problem of albums, using the 'album/track' markup
previously proposed seems to make more semantic sense than this proposal.
