I think the difference here is whether the audio is provided in the
media resource as a separate audio track or as a separate audio
resource. I don't think anyone suggested to merge it with the main
audio track.

I've reformulated it to:
"* (DV-4) Support recordings of real human speech as a track of the
media resource, or as an external file."

Hopefully that is clearer.
