Apple to credit song purchases towards full album sales?

Apparently, Apple is finally working out a new type of deal with the major labels to allow for the purchase of single songs on iTunes to act as “credit” towards the purchase of the full album - at least within a limited time frame of the original download. This type of deal has been rumored before in the past, but the news comes from the New York Times, citing "people involved in the negotiations.” Still not sure what kind of time period Apple has in mind or how many labels it has on board, but this makes a lot of sense to me!
