Cleric Implement and Shield

So I've seen conflicting opinions on forums, FAQs, and the PHB but I am not sure what to make of the cleric. Is he capable of holding a shield in his offhand and wearing or attaching his implement to his shield in order to gain its enhancement bonus to his attacks and damage?
Holy symbols (and ki focuses) can be wielded or worn, whereas other implements must be wielded. Wearing the holy symbol typically means doing so as a medallion or badge, but affixing it to the shield (as long as he is actually holding the shield) should also be acceptable.

No matter how it's worn, it doesn't occupy any other type of slot. (Wearing one as a medallion doesn't occupy the neck slot, for example.)
