This is the same problem with re-using any class name in multiple  
microformats.  As mentioned earlier, if we re-use "summary" in haudio  
(which I'm not arguing for nor against here), what if we want to  
embed haudio inside hreview?  How do we keep the haudio summary from  
becoming the hreview summary?  The answer in both cases, I think, is  
to define parsing rules to account for embedded microformats with  
shared property names, which is a discussion already begun here:


More generally, I think we should be defining parsing rules based on  
the semantics, rather than vice versa.
