I found No evidence of Position as far as podcasting is concerned
although all the examples make a reference to episode I am not sure that
this is the same thing, Can I also point out that podcasting Is NOT a
problem area for this discussion.

However Position Is something that should be supported As far as Music
Downloads are concerned

+1 for Position

Manu are you also going to REMOVE the Album and Podcast properties and
revert back to *audio-title* until any disputes have been resolved? I do
not think that three votes was enough to warrant any changes to the
existing proposal.

I think you should have notified all the active participants in hAudio
BEFORE you made any changes to OUR proposition.
