The hAudio spec says of the contributor property:


        The contents of the element SHOULD include a valid hCard

which suggests that :

        <span class="contributor">
          <span class="vcard">

is required; whereas:

        <span class="contributor vcard">

        <span class="contributor fn">

should be acceptable; and will parse as intended.

I think the above wording should be changed to:

        The contributor's name SHOULD also be marked up as a valid hCard

Also, the "SHOULD" in that clause renders the subsequent:

        The contents of the element MAY be specified in plain-text.
