[uf-new] item property (was: hAudio: audio-title/album-title vs. recording/album)

Just to give some insight into what I was thinking with hItem:

<div class="haudio">
 <span class="fn album contributor">Celldweller</span> contains
 <span class="item track"><span class="fn">Switchback</span></span> and
 <span class="item track"><span class="fn">Symbiont</span></span>.

What does this get you?

(1) forever and ever, no matter how "track" evolves with hAudio,
parses will _always_ know that attributes within the item associate to
the "track", not to hAudio
(2) hAudio doesn't have to spec what's in track if it already gets it from hItem
(3) If there was _some other sort of item_ with auto ... say "studio"
... the purpose of having "item" & "track" together makes more sense

Regards, etc...
