The first one is more flexible, but that does not count in this particular
example. I still think that it is weird to have the summary inside the
details element, because the details is not the summary ;-) It would depend
on the context surrounding the element. Is it stand alone, part of a list,
is it a section, inside an aside ? Depending where the details is, the
enclosing details element could very be redondant. Of course, if it would be
a div, it replaces it, but if it is anything else, then it is probably

Do you have a list of examples of details type usage on the Web ? I
personally don't, but I'll try to find the time to check.
