[goodrelations] GoodRelations in Google Rich Snippets: gr:validThrough now correctly handled & mandatory

Dear all:

I just found out that Google is now correctly using gr:validThrough for price information:

You MUST indicate a validity date that has not yet lapsed for gr:UnitPriceSpecification in order to be accepted as a valid price.

<h1>Canon Offer</h1>
	<span about="#offer" typeof="gr:Offering">
<!-- Google-specific Review vocab -->
	<span rel="v:hasReview">
 		<span typeof="v:Review-aggregate">
   		Average rating: <span property="v:rating">4.4</span>,
     	based on <span property="v:count">89</span> reviews
 		</span><br />
  <span typeof="gr:UnitPriceSpecification">
            <span property="gr:hasCurrency">USD</span>
            <span property="gr:hasCurrencyValue" datatype="xsd:float" content="899.00">$899.00</span> (Valid from :
            <span property="gr:validFrom" content="2009-12-30T23:59:59Z" datatype="xsd:dateTime">December 30, 2009, </span>through 
  --->>>>>  <span property="gr:validThrough" content="2014-12-30T23:59:59Z" datatype="xsd:dateTime">December 30, 2014</span>)<br />
	    <span rel="gr:valueAddedTaxIncluded" content="true" datatype="xsd:boolean">VAT included</span>
        </span><br />

This again shows that Google is increasing its support of GoodRelations.

Best wishes
