Yes, it would. The trouble is that the item (title, url) and  
description (the text of the review) are all going to be jumbled up  
here, so it's difficult to isolate them into separate 'item' and  
'description' sections. Could it be implicit that a 'url' class  
inside an 'hreview' class refers to the item being reviewed?
