A related yet bit outdated resource on modeling services with GoodRelations (and thus schema.org) is here:

    http://www.ebusiness-unibw.org/wiki/GoodRelationsService

This explains the basic pattern. Note that Some GoodRelations elements have slightly different names in schema.org, as listed here:

    http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/Cookbook/Schema.org#Naming_Differences

I plan to update this page and migrate it to the new GoodRelations Cookbook at

    http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/Cookbook
But this is an open issue and will take me a while.

So as long as the definition of a Schema Product is clear that it does include services, I think most people including myself won't have a problem understanding and using it to mark up services.
