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.
