None of the proposed removals are issues, I am simply applying the 80/20 
rule to the existing schema using the Microformats Process


And microformats Design principles


I am not being unfair in any way I would just like to move the haudio  
forward to being something publishers can use with confidence and 
understanding, in the end we will have a more stable format

Thanks Scott as I said earlier They are not Issues, they are simply not 
supported in hAudio 1.0 we HAVE spent a year and a half discussing all 
of these properties, I don't see why this merits further discussion or

Not mine Scott, you don't think I would spend all this time trying to 
develop an audio microformat then at the end trash everyone's work 
including my own? what sense is there in that?

I am sorry seem to have upset one or two people with my recommendations 
but if we don't stick to the microformats process in developing haudio 
than what is the point of a process at all?

Best wishes
