Just to clarify, I also wanted to mention... this is not about Merchants,
or Selling stuff necessarily... it is about having a property like
sectors/purpose/competitive_space to allow an idea such as this to happen:
"we have the same purpose, or we deal with the same domain, or we are in
the same competitive space, etc" without having to resort to creating
thousands of sub Types to do the same thing.

You could have a Research Organization that does research on Infants /
Babies and could be in the same sector as the Baby Merchant www.gibble.com
for instance.  In other words, a new property like
sector/purpose/competitive_space would allow cross-domain relations against
a SKOS Concept or external vocabulary identifiers.  (Btw, It is this use
that I myself often find myself manually making the relationships in my own
Linked Data graphs.)
