From the perspective of GoodRelations, the proposal is fine, since GR is built around this broader notion of offers anyway.

I have only one comment:

For the "seller" property, I am inclined to keep that because the more generic, new "offerer" property may be too abstract for broad audiences.

But I am not totally against that either.

Note that there also is the demand side from GoodRelations represented in


but that should work in your scenarios as it stands.
