[uf-discuss] [hListing][hReview] 'Description' conflict

I was recently trying to implement mark-up with both hListing (draft) 
and hReview combined. For the most part the properties align except in 
the case of 'DESCRIPTION'.

hListing: According to the schema, description is REQUIRED, makes no 
assertion about detail or completeness of content marked up with 
hReview: “This optional field contains the full text representing the 
written opinion of the reviewer”

The conflict here is that review specifies 'full text' whilst hListing 
is permitting it to be used more loosely. But, if a piece of content is 
marked up with both hListing AND hReview, even though the description is 
optional in hReview, an hReview parser will not find 'full text' from 
the description classname.

Since 'SUMMARY' is already claimed in hListing for the purposes of the 
listing title, I'd like to solicit suggestions on resolving the conflict.
