http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2013Jan/0140.html from Jason Ronallo.

"The schema.org documentation should show multiple inheritance chains
when there are multiple parents for a type. For instance a Hospital is
a CivicStructure, MedicalOrganization, and EmergencyService. No matter
which "Hospital" link you follow on the Full Hierarchy page you end up
on the same http://schema.org/Hospital page, as you should. But the
only hierarchy displayed is:

Thing > Place > CivicStructure > Hospital

It should also show the other inheritance chains:

Thing > Organization > LocalBusiness > MedicalOrganization > Hospital
Thing > Organization > LocalBusiness > EmergencyService > Hospital

The design might be prettier or more compact than the above, but this
data seems important for understanding the definition and possible
uses of types that have multiple inheritance. It also helps to be able
to look at other documentation pages to find definitions of those
types and related markup examples."
