Not to suggest the comparison was particularly useful (merely enough
to prevent me from becoming interested in UIDs in haudio), but I was
under the impression haudio is not restricted to downloadable audio.

Yeah, I should have said "many people." Regardless of my poor word
choice and vague metrics, my point is just that I don't yet see
enough publishing of UIDs with audio to interest me in investigating
further. I presumed your goal was convincing active participants in
the haudio discussion of the importance of UIDs in haudio, and you'd
want to know that it wasn't yet accomplished in my case. But if
others are interested, I certainly wouldn't attempt to prevent
further research. Indeed, I would encourage it.
