Actually I was considering (perhaps wrongly) if a url property is used, 
whatever the itemtype, there shouldn't be any other markup since it 
should be described on the target page (as long as it's on the same 
domain). Otherwise it's just redundant informations; and in my case 
since I doesn't display the startDate, it would force me to use hidden 
properties. As for the name, I assume it should (could ?) extract it 
from the url anchor text ?

Yup, some clarifications would be helpful in this case :)
