[uf-discuss] newbie post: hCalendar Event pricing with hCommerce?

I'm looking to set up an events listing service as part of a web project 
for a parenting site. I've had a hunt around the hCalendar spec and can 
find no references as to how one might add event pricing. Some events 
would also have an age appropriate property. I guess the latter would 
clearly fall into the realm of a custom span class, but there is a 
strong case for standardising event pricing.

Many of the events I'd need to work with would have multiple prices for 
children, parents, and concessions for pensioners, etc.

I note that Eric Meyer posted back in 2005 proposing an hCommerce spec 
that one could embed inside hCalendar: 
This makes good sense to me, but I've not been able to find any evidence 
that this has been taken forward. Have I missed something?
