But doesn't Not yet, mfo is just a concept an has not really been 
contributed to since early 2007

so yes it would cause problems if you decided to embed a haudio inside a 
hcard because hcard has no understanding of haudio

I would say on a whole that existing microformats class names 
(particularaly the older ones) cant really be used reliably in New 
Microformats. because the older one's are only aware of their own context.
