I think it would be a better idea to use an existing music format
(check out Rosegarden [1] and LilyPond [2]. Take the internal format
from one of those, and register it for a content type (something like
applikation/music-notation or audio/notated or something (audio is
probably not a good idea, since the notation should be displayed on
screen or printed, not played by the UA)).  Then use the OBJECT tag to 
refer to the music.
