I'm not going to get too philosophical -- item in this particular
context means a "thing", though I can see the abiguity you're getting

I'm definitely ... and you can see this in the wikipage ... looking to
work closer to the intersection than the union of attributes, as
obviously one issue is open ended and the other is not.

I'll probably mine hReview and hListing, both the specs and how
they're used, to understand how this is used in the wild.

Regards, etc...
