Rather than respond in detail to other points, I'd like to make a suggestion.

Why don't we stop worrying about albums and just solve audio-info?

This seems to be the most atomic, simplest case we can address. Playlists, albums, tracks, CDs, etc., are all complications. Once we
get hAudio working, I think it makes sense to talk about what hAlbum might look like--including whether or not it is just another
"type" of hAudio.

There are clearly far more audio pieces on the web than albums, even if all albums are (or have) audio characteristics.

Can we focus on solving this base case and then build from there?
