Reviews are often carried out in blog entries, so if hAtom sees
widespread adoption it may also be useful to say "is assumed to be the
author of the containing hAtom entry". You could try and generalise by
saying "the containing microformat", but that is probably going too far.
You might even make some kind of assumption about dtreviewed, although
exactly what assumption would presumably be up for debate. Once hAtom
0.1 is out we should probably begin to formulate best practice
guidelines for "several hReview entries within one hAtom entry", which
seems to be a common case.
