In general a review's rating is about the 'item,' not self- 
referential. Perhaps you should make this multi-dimensional [http:// 


 ><dd class="category">Feed Encoding</dd>

Perhaps you should use tags here?


 ><td class="title">Comment #1</td>

Should be entry-title, no?

 ><td class="content">

Should be entry-content, no?

Otherwise looks very interesting. I notice that you're using the  
'description' class name on the comments. Are you planning on making  
the comments into hreviews as well?
