Not to mention hAudio could also use DC.title instead of FN... or
DC.creator/DC.contributor instead of CONTRIBUTOR, or DC.date instead of
PUBLISHED, and DC.description instead of DESCRIPTION.

I've never been happy with the choice of FN instead of TITLE in hAudio
(TITLE means "job title" in Microformats). This could offer a good
compromise if people are interested?
