In my medicated stupor, I thought that made sense. Let me try it again.
The <object> include pattern has some performance problems (see
<http://microformats.org/wiki/include-pattern-feedback>), so it would
be best to use the anchor include pattern but include some link text
indicating the content that is being included. Such as:
<a href="#sharedcompany" class="include">Widgets, Inc.</a>
