I certainly don't think "hentry comment" is a great idea, though I've
seen this in the wild (Niall Kennedy's blog).

Well, I'm not sure. Is it in scope or not? I've certainly taken flak
today for saying we have to take into account multiple comments -
because that's how they occur in the wild - saying we have talk about
"a comment".

In either case, I'm still quite comfortable that the "Schema #2"
proposal -- baring of course _lots more investigation_ - covers it,
for the real-world examples shown.

Regards, etc...
