[uf-discuss] hReview authoring and excerpts

As I'm writing up a review for my blog I'm having some trouble with  
how to deal with the couple paragraph excerpts I typically use on the  
front of ChunkySoup.net and reconciling that with writing a review  
that is 4 or 5 paragraphs long. I typically just grab the beginning  
of my post and use that, but doing so in this case would cut the  
review in half.

Issue 1: There doesn't seem like there is any hatom-like entry- 
summary field or any other method of signifying that there is more to  
the review somewhere.

Issue 2: In general I'm not sure about the dangers (if any) of  
consuming a shortend review, or having different reviews with  
different data (in this case my conclusion / rating comes at the end  
and wouldn't be part of the excerpt)

So in this particular instance I'm going to avoid the issue by  
rewriting the start of the post so that the content that makes up the  
review isn't part of the content I want to excerpt, but altering  
writing style seems to be a bad long term solution.

Thoughts? Anyone wrestle with this before?
