[uf-discuss] include-pattern support for data outside of the current page? [Was: Visible Data...a Microformat requirement?]

The thread around invisble microformats reminded me of this example from 
the visible Web. Maybe relevant to this discussion, if not relevant to 
the include-pattern.

An index page (http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/oilprice.html) 
contains currency information that applies to all pages it indexes. For 
instance, in this data page 
(http://quotes.ino.com/exchanges/?r=NYMEX_CL), there is no unit/currency 
defined, and we only know the numbers are "U.S. Dollars per barrel" b/c 
it was defined in the separate page we came from.

Should my "data page" contains an include-pattern link to the currency 
definition from the other page?

Is it good for the interpretation of the data on one page to rely on 
data on another page? anyone has an opinion?

I'm asking since I haven't seen on the include-pattern page any clear 
direction on this.
