The continuing work of hProduct has brought a good deal of 
around how separate microfromats can be combined to 
provide more
concrete semantic solutions, particularly hProduct with 
Ideally, these and other microformats would be used in 
combination to
provide details about the product and product listing (see 
recipes [1] for examples). Working through the hProduct 
issues list
[2], it was suggested that hListing provide price and
transaction-related details. Unfortunately, the latest 
draft proposal
of hListing was published in February 2006 -- with this in 
mind, we are
recommending changes to the hListing proposal to better 
transactional elements that would assist in matching up 
buyers and
sellers, plus be used in tandem with other microformats 
that help
describe products and services.

I have created a separate hlisting brainstorming page [3] 
with a new
proposed schema, plus lists of what was added, removed and 
changed. For
the purposes of discussion, I would request your comments 
on the
hlisting issues page [4].
