Issue D4: 2008-01-10 
Raised by Andy Mabbett <http://microformats.org/wiki/User:AndyMabbett>
The required use of rel-enclosure
<http://microformats.org/wiki/rel-enclosure> does not allow for links to
streaming files, which are not cacheable, and are thus outside the scope
of rel-enclosure. An example on
the relevant link is below the heading "LISTEN AGAIN".
I have looked at the cited example to this issue and I can't see a
problem with marking the link up with rel-enclosure
to 21 November</a>
can be marked up in haudio like this:
type="audio/x-pn-realaudio">Listen to 21 November</a>
I would like to note ".ram" files can be cached and downloaded.
I do however agree that rel-enclosure IS unsuitable for some types of
files such as audio streamed directly from a server.
I would like to Recommend that this issue should be closed, pending
