It seems that the issue that Andy has, Martin, is that if someone were
to do that, the hAudio specification says that it's okay to assume that
the first contributor is the primary artist. In this particular case, it
would be wrong to do so because both Simon AND Garfunkel are each the

Proposal for resolving hAudio Issue D1:
* If multiple contributors are specified, without |role|
specifications, it /MAY/ be assumed that the first role mentioned

specification that are not 100% positive.
