Yes. The include pattern (both the OBJECT and rel-include variants)
allows you to point a microformat to some other piece of data
published already in the page, for the purpose of *not* repeating
information. So for example, I could fix up my website with hAtom for
blog entries, and rather than repeat my hCard in every entry, just
use the include pattern to point to the fulll hCard in my sidebar
each time (although hAtom has handling for that anyway, so that
example is slightly mute).
Anyway, in situations where you want information to be included and
displayed in the page it should be written directly as content. The
include patterns in µf are for parsing when you *don't* want to
display repeated data.
