1. I find the markup for periodic events too verbose. I would propose a 
property of class Event
periodicity:Number - the number of units as repetition period.

The issue is with "unit" which can be any time unit such as second, 
minute, hour, day, week, ... but I believe it should be in accordance 
with startDate and endDate values.

2. eventCategory might be a http://schema.org/Enumeration This way it 
may have expected type URL

All the best,
- Adrian
