I'm not sure I understand exactly what you mean, but for a few clients we 
have set up payment tracking that stores in the database every transaction 
sent to the payment gateway, connected to an order (and the order is of 
course still connected to the user).

It's nice to have a payment-level record that can be browsed in the admin, 
to see when an auth, capture, void, or credit was made.

Those improvements correspond with a different orders/orderlines data 
model, so they aren't suitable for dropping into a stock Standard demo 
catalog, unfortunately.
