1) Why is it a problem that the audio elements only display the controls?  You
don't seem to say, unless "whose dimensions are set by the UA" is relevant (I
can't figure out).

2) You can set the width of audio controls by CSS.  If some browser doesn't
support it, file a bug against that browser.

3) Subtitles should be displayed in WebSRT, which is a work in progress.

So I don't see any actual use-cases here.  Why would you want this?  Can you
give an example of an actual webpage that displays audio with a poster? 
There's a poster attribute for video because existing pre-HTML5 web video
players normally include a poster, so it's a very common need.  If there's no
similarly common need for audio, it doesn't need its own special markup,
authors can make it up on their own.
