I would like to confirm the resolution to haudio issue D1: 2008-01-10 
Contributor [1]

The hAudio Specification should be changed to facilitate a more 
streamlined mark-up

Upon recommendations from Manu the Specification should be changed 
(slightly) to.

Contributor [2]

A Contributor is any entity that takes part in the creation and 
distribution of an audio recording. Examples include: artist, composer, 
publisher, guitarist, vocalist, violinist, lead singer, backup singer, 
bassist, drummer, manager, and roadie.

    * The element is identified by the class name |contributor|.
    * hAudio /MAY/ include one or more contributors.
    * The contributor's name SHOULD also be marked up as a valid hCard
      Microformat. <http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard>
          o The |role| attribute /SHOULD/ be used to specify the
            contributor's responsibility related to the audio recording
            if hCard is utilized.
    * The contributor's name MAY be specified in plain-text without
      being enclosed in a hCard Microformat.
    * If multiple contributors are specified, without |role|
      specifications, it /MAY/ be assumed that the first role mentioned
      is the primary artist or creator. This applies to plain-text
      contributor markup as well.
