Hi Thad,
as for GoodRelations, we currently have properties for specific product identifiers, e.g.

 gr:hasEAN_UCC-13 (EAN13, UPC, GTIN13)
 gr:hasGTIN-14 (GTIN14)
 gr:hasGTIN-8 (GTIN8)
 gr:hasMPN (Manufacturer Part Number)
 gr:hasStockKeepingUnit (SKU)

You can use all of them to augment a http://schema.org/Product itemtype:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product" itemid="#product">
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Colorvision TV123</span>
  <span itemprop="description">The ACME Colorvision 123 is the
leading-edge color TV from our company.</span>
  Manufacturer Part No.: <span itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#hasMPN">TV123</span>
  EAN: <span itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#hasEAN_UCC-13">1234567890123</span>
  GTIN14: <span itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#hasGTIN-14">12345678901234</span>
  GTIN8: <span itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#hasGTIN-8">12345678</span>
  SKU: <span itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#hasStockKeepingUnit">ABC123</span>

GoodRelations does currently not have a common superproperty of all product identifiers, but it may get a generic gr:productID superproperty in the near future.
