I'm missing something that you're seeing in Ryan's message -- what fn
belongs to depends on the context of the "fn".

The "fn" within the contributor is bound in meaning to "contributor".
The other fn binds to "haudio".

NOTE that I looked in other microformats for this pattern and did not
find it. The closest I came was in hReview, which does this:

* item
** fn <- the title of the thing being reviewed
* reviewer
** fn <- the name of the reviewer

Perhaps this pattern would work for you?
