Is it rel-purchase or rel-payment?

I think each parser will need to determine this for themselves,  
within their own design constraints.  It's not really a semantics  
issue to be defined in the microformat, as the semantics of @rel  
don't really tell us anything about the two URLs, only how they're  
related.  That said, if I were writing a parser, I'd probably use  
"[audio-title] [@rel]", where [audio-title] is the value of the audio- 
title property and [@rel] is the value of the rel attribute, e.g.  
"April In Paris enclosure" or "Kid A sample".  Those seem like  
descriptive enough labels to me.
