That Is YOUR definition

are you meaning that  "fn album" is an optimization  based on something 
like  the  nickname optimization in  hCard  ?

The wiki is a little misleading at the moment but off the 
audio-info-proposal page...


The title of a collection of audio recordings that are represented as a 
CD, album or LP. The text should be a short textual description used to 
identify the work among interested parties. This can be the title of a 
CD, album title, or the name of a collection of audio recordings.

    * The element is identified by the class name |album-title|.
    * hAudio /MUST/ have either |album-title| or |audio-title|.


How has the definition changed from the above?

All I am suggesting is that we should forget about any "fn album" 
optimization for now and keep it simple.
Now that  item / fn has been accepted to described hAudio  tracks, there 
is no real need to complicate hAudio any more than saying that 
audio-title is the main hAudio title and fn is a track title and leave 
it there.
