Actually, it is quite likely to be used in the work of art uF under discussion.

But I that is actually the problem.  What if I have a speech about a work of art? Or an audio-tour of the Louvre? Embedded
hWorkOfArt in those hAudio now have name conflicts.

Audio is audio, no?

Speech, song, sound effect. "audio-title" seems to fit with all of those, without losing specificity and without overlapping with
other potential "works".

I agree with Scott that solving the embedding problem /generally/ would be preferable.  However, I think audio-title is better than
work-title, both because of overlap and because I think it more accurately addresses the currently scoped problem of marking up a
piece of audio.
