For albums and tracks, yes. For marking up classical music, no.

None. Not one of the submitted 145 example URLs contained any opera or
classical music that I can recall. Draw whatever conclusions you want to
from that statement. :)

If it bothers you, please collect some examples and add them to the
audio-info-examples page. Although I fear it would be a waste of your
time since we already have several proposals on the table that would
solve the infinite nesting issue, which I assume, is what you are
talking about.

I was strongly requesting a scope of discussion because the thread was
going all over the place. It's over 125 messages deep at this point -
which is a good sign that people are talking about too many issues.

Also keep in mind that bringing in a great number of issues complicates
things and slows the Microformat down. Case in point: The media-info
discussion. I should also add that while a reminder to the scope of this
discussion was given, the questions that were asked were answered.
