hAudio (haudio)
 - title. required. text.

---- title is already taken to mean something else, so TITLE is not an
option. hCard uses TITLE for job-title. I would suggest FN instead.

collaborator. optional. using hCard.

--- collaborator might be changed to more of the Dublin core terms
such as contributer

release-date. optional. using datetime-design-pattern.

--- is release-date different than 'published-date'?

sample. optional. using rel-design-pattern with sample as the mf-rel-value.

--- by 'sample' do you mean 'clip' or 'download'? what if it isn't a
SAMPLE, but a full download?

acquire. optional. using rel-design-pattern with acquire as the mf-rel-value.

--- there is aleady the 'enclosure' used for ATOM and Podcasts

image-summary. optional. using HTML and XHTML tag img.

--- image-summary? why not re-use LOGO or PHOTO?

genre. optional. text.

--- genre sounds alot like TAGS or CATEGORIES to me? we should recycle
terms in existing microformats

>> Please provide as much feedback and criticism as possible. We'd like to
get this moved into an official draft within the next week or two.
Please post all comments to the list so that all may participate in
finalizing the proposal.

--- is there a reason you want to get this done in the next week or
two? the process will take as long as the process takes. We need to
take time and evaluate, itterate and test the strawman before it can
be anything official.
