hi,

interesting, lately i have started this community group to work on topic of wishes/offers, their matching, dependencies and various systems to arrange transactions (including ones not based around use of any kind of currency)
http://www.w3.org/community/community-io/2011/09/01/embracing-diversity/

i guess demands/offers could come useful to use in there...

thanks!
