It does. And the current draft of hReview did just that.

What I was saying was that the examples were documented incorrectly.  
Several examples had [0-5], notably Amazon, while in reality they  
should have been [1-5]. I corrected those on the wiki a little bit  
ago, because I realized that it was leading to confusion.

Also, please realize that we've learned a lot about what we now call  
'the process,' since the time hReview was started. In fact, we've  
learned a lot from developing hReview, as its was the first compound  
microformat that was not an isomorphic translation of a preexisting  
schema, therefore the first that had to go through a thorough collect  
examples, review schemas, brainstorm, iterate loop. In a way, 'the  
process' grew out of hReview.
