I haven't checked, but they may be slightly older implementations.  
For a time there was a problem with the OBJECT include pattern in  
Safari, which led to the Anchor based include pattern being designed.  
That in turn is sub-optimal as empty-anchors are poor accessibility.  
So, if those implementations were built before Safari fixed its  
OBJECT bug — or before that fix was regarded as wide-spread — then  
they may have compromised with repeating data.

The new hReview deployment we've just put out uses the OBJECT pattern.
