FN doesn't solve the problem because the examples demonstrate that the
type of the hAudio, whether the item is an audio track or audio album,
is never explicitly stated, but is instead implied by the markup.

Therefore, we need at least two properties that imply both type and title.

If we were to use FN, it would be impossible to distinguish between an
album (an concept that can contain more than one hAudio) and a
song/speech (an individual hAudio).

Got any suggestions as to how we imply that an hAudio is either a single
work (song/speech/sound effect), or a collection of works (album)?
