[uf-discuss] hreview using include pattern

Great, so I can use the object.  So back to the original question: Can
the item information be separate from the first review and just included
in the first review using object?  If yes, then does that item
information need to be wrapped in hreview?  

Any tools to test and validate?

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.
