I don't think so.

In the wiki example (re: James Levine), the <object> refers to #j,  
which is the .fn.n of the main hCard. If we were to change things so  
that the include pattern only looked at children, that example would  
either need to add another layer of markup (around the .fn.n) or the  
include-pattern would have to refer to the entire hCard. I don't  
think this is as convenient.

I think the ability to point straight at the element to be included  
is a feature worth having, even if it makes parsing more difficult.
