This seems to be some other problem space than the blog-post/hAtom 
microformat is working toward.

There's been quite a few posts talking about the microformats philosophy 
and process, so may want to start back a few months and skim through the 
list. If you feel there's a need for a 'physicalgoods:item' microformat, 
start here reading here [1] and start documenting use cases that you see 
on the web.

Regards, etc...
