We don't need something as heavyweight as hcalendar to mark up the
published date. The examples don't support the need for anything more
heavyweight than just 'published-date' with the use of a simple

The parsers will have to keep a global list of identifiers around and
map back to the tag after the entire page has been parsed. Perhaps it
would be cleaner if implemented like so:

<div class="haudio">
 <a href="#album1" class="collection-item"></a>

Remember, though, the 'id=' approach has been argued against in the past:
