I think the main reason this is not addressed in hAtom is because it was
not addressed in atom. I have been lead to believe this was a deliberate
decision by the committee to avoid trying to solve too hard a problem. I
think hAtom or similar formats will be applied to comments in some way
over time, but I also think we will need a little more experience with
the standard before formally tackling hard problems like this.

I think you'll see something like this happen a year or two from now,
but not until hAtom is pretty mature and well-trodden.
