You cannot say Organizations are in or about a "Class of Thing".  The
Organization is in a Competitive Space ...or an Organization Sector... like
"Human Rights"... "Animal Training" ... "A/C Repair Services" ... etc.

Freebase has all of these, btw.

I just quickly found out within our beloved Schema.org.  We do NOT have an
property called Organization Sector, like Freebase does, nor anything close
to that to say "This org is in the business of...this org deals primarily
with...this org mostly sells products concerning the subject of...."

And that just bites and also makes it nearly impossible to easily say that
an Organization or Website sells products in a particular category(sector)
like Baby & Toddler ... or Pets (Animals) .. or Mufflers ... or A/C ... or
provides services in the sector of "Physical Therapy" ... while not having
to create thousands of sub-Types unnecessarily, like "Physical Therapist",
"Muffler Shop", etc.

We need an easy path like Organization Sector, to say that an Organization
deals mostly with products or services in a particular sector or subject,
if you will.

Thoughts ?
