Hi list,

hListing tells the world that someone is selling/renting something,
but shouldn't there be a way to express that someone bought (or
rented, etc.) something, i.e., transaction has indeed taken place?

Real-world examples include any (online or offline) commerce receipts,
but also "social commerce" services like Blippy or Apple's Ping that
publicize users' purchases.

I did my homework and read the lists, and found that a Receipt
microformat was proposed which would fit this purpose

However, wouldn't it be more straightforward to add an optional
element to a hListing, for example a datetime element specifying the
transaction's date?
