If we do that, we will lose the ability to differentiate between an
album, podcast, toplist, download, and chart. These are differentiations
that we need to make because of the examples discovered thus far.

By using something like "podcast" or "album" we not only define the type
of the hAudio, but the collection property as well. We address two
issues (how do we specify hAudio type, and how do we specify hAudio
collections) with one class name.
