Excerpting from http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/GoodRelations

"""The schema.org team and Martin Hepp (Good Relations project lead)
have been discussing integration of a version of Good Relations into
schema.org.

The idea follows the precedent with IPTC's rNews, whose vocabulary was
added in 2011. The schema.org site would give credit in a similar form
to rNews, and Good Relations as a project would continue
independently. However the majority of GR's terms would be reflected
into schema.org's core vocabulary.

public working document]
* The issues [https://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/15 Add
Time for xsd:time, DateTime for xsd:datetime] and [14: Schema.org
booleans (True/False) vs RDF 'true/false'] stem from this
collaboration.

document.

site for background, e.g.
[http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/Quickstart quickstart] page.
* Schema.org already has [http://schema.org/Offer Offer] and related
terms, but will benefit from adding detail from Good Relations. [...]

I'm sure many of you here are famliar with Good Relations already.
Martin Hepp and the schema.org team have been discussion the
possibility of integrating GR into schema.org, following the precedent
of the earlier IPTC/rNews schema which was added last year. The idea
is that we would add class and property definitions from GR into
schema.org, alongside source acknowledgement / credit in the relevant
pages (see http://schema.org/Article for an rNews example).

Martin has a public working document linked from
http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/GoodRelations which has the full
details. As you'll see this is a substantial piece of work, so we
welcome in particular detailed review comments on the specifics. The
issues http://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/14 and
http://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/15 are directly related
btw.

cheers,

Dan
