Sorry to bring up this sore point, but why "audio-title" over "fn"? I
did see your feedback a couple of days ago about the concepts of
"audio-title" being different from "track-title", etc (I can't
remember the exact terms, but you get the point). However, it seems to
me that "fn" could be used to represent each of these _concepts_, as
the "fn" will be appropriately nested within identifying containers.

A little voice in my head says this is more general than audio...

Regards, etc...
