Hi Thad:
> Nice.  OK....but we really need to surface properties or even a new type for the Rentals domain itself ... not only Real Estate but other Product Types like Forklifts, Bounce Houses, Moving Trucks ... Rental-able Types ... so does United Rentals or Uhaul or BounceHouseMouse have an additional need for Rental terms ? :

The question is whether we want to enumerate the types of rental objects in schema.org. I personally would externalize this, because e.g. www.productontology.org provides already rich (and evolving) definitions for e.g.

http://www.productontology.org/id/Studio_apartment
http://www.productontology.org/id/Bedsit
http://www.productontology.org/id/Townhouse
http://www.productontology.org/id/Secondary_suite
http://www.productontology.org/id/Bungalow
http://www.productontology.org/id/Bunker
http://www.productontology.org/id/Log_cabin
http://www.productontology.org/id/Travel_trailer
http://www.productontology.org/id/Mobile_home

and basically any other one from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_house_types
