The above seems to be based on a brand new idea of how we determine
the difference between an album and a track. We've been assuming
until now that hAudio is a track by default. This seems to be
supported by the examples, in which there are many more tracks than
albums. The above seems to assume the opposite, that hAudio is
always an album. I see no reason to make such an assumption. Could
you maybe explain why the above is preferable to the individual track
model we've been working with, e.g.:
<span class="fn">Hokkaido Dream</span>
This seems to me analogous to hCard's treatment of organizations and
individuals. Individuals are more common, so we assume individuals.
Tracks are more common, so why shouldn't we assume tracks?
