Alas, that is an error I made on Kelkoo. Under the current draft  
schema, ‘photo’ should be a property of ‘item’ and we got that wrong.  
I think we've got an open bug at Yahoo! to fix that, and I'll check  
the status of it on Monday.

I do wonder about allowing ‘photo’ under ‘hListing’, just to loosen it  
up and maybe allow for photos the accompany the listing but which are  
not necessarily of the item itself, but I'm unsure, and would probably  
call that an optimisation. As such, shouldn't be considered until  
later in the process.
