Personally I was not a supporter of changing work-title in the first

Yes this would be preferable it certainly has a better meaning than
summary. I initialy thought this, It fits in with existing methods in
use and concepts already discussed, 

but as you say it may be mistaken an misunderstood as re-use of title
from vCard which it is not, and its the same kind of thing we are trying
to avoid in with "fn". 

I would prefer users to understand or misunderstand what hAudio is
trying to describe as a re-use of the summary attribute from hreview It
makes it easy.

I also think that in any future evolution of hAudio for example hAlbum,
hCast etc, may rely on a "title" attribute of some kind for its meaning.

In most cases an audio track is one of many tracks, to give all these a
title attribute may be excessive and lead to confusion again.
