I think  re-use hAtom too I have done for a long time,  but when I 
mentioned placing media-info in the domain of hAtom, It received quite a 
lot of push back from the community [1] I got "talked" out of the whole 
idea, I thought maybe I shouldn't go there again this time, but now the 
evidence is In so to speak, It was the right thought to begin with.

I looked at comment but It doesn't seem to have got very far, and has 
not got much in the way of examples But seems to mostly concern itself 
with , I have already analysed 25 really good examples of Comments, so 
maybe I should add what I know to that and go from there? my only 
concern is wasn't a comment microformat(hcomment) depreciated?

Thanks for your valuable feedback
