Is there a parallel argument with regard to hReview's "summary", hAtom's 
  "headline" and Atom 1.0's "title"?

That is, if my review the content of a blog entry, and my entry's title 
is my blog entry's title, do I need to repeat it?  Or can readers use 
"headline" for whatever they'd normally use "summary" for?

Since "summary" is optional, this isn't as critical as "author", but it 
would be nice to know what the best thing to do is where you really do 
want to supply it, but want to avoid duplication.
