The additions and changes to schema.org will be a big help to our clients.

Unfortunately, support for rental transactions and service transactions is still omitted. There was some incomplete consideration of these types of transactions in the Good Relations ontology. A good many of our clients are travel providers, whose facilities are rented and whose services are purchased, so they are still left out of web markup.

Is there any consideration to be given to extending the scope of this effort to include these types of transactions?

Thanks, Jim

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.

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
