I now think #3 is the way to go for multiple encodings in most cases.
However, it seems it should be valid to say
This has nothing to do with multiple encodings, but it seems that apps
ought to infer that a resource matching one of the ids specified in the
dc:identifier properties above is licensed under cc-by-2.0.
The MusicBrainz id could serve as a canonical id that has an arbitrary
number of encodings and attendant hashes, but I wouldn't want to require
people to obtain a canonical id, as they have to do too much work already.
