--- depending on the schema that is finalised i don't think this would
be valid. Many microformats make use of the fact that certain values
will be CHILDREN of others. So if you want to associate work-title
with a specific item, it needs to be a child of that item. Since we
have been having a long discussion about grouping and nesting, you
would need to make work-title a child of item as you did in your
following example.

> <li class="item">
>    <a href="http://link-to-download/1" class="work-title" rel="acquire">Track_1</a>
> </li>

This would say that the ITEM has:
work-title: Track_1
acquire: http://link-to-download/1

The more times i see and type 'work-title' it reminds me of a
job-title. The title you have at work. As opposed to a 'work of art'.
I would prefer FN or SUMMARY personally.

Is there possibly a better name? what has the implied schema shown us
from the gathered research from the wild?
