Yes. Although entry content at src="http://example.org/comments/feed/1138"
is allowed by the Atom 1.0 spec. How does content at src get translated in
hAtom? (The Wiki doesn't give any details on this.)
class="content">Comments</a> wouldn't exactly match the intent of
content at src, which is intended to imply inline processing. But maybe
that's a nitpick.
