Series already has "name" (via Thing), so if we're going this route I
don't think seriesName would be needed.

Series does imply a sequence of things or events, so some means of
relating series members to their series would be useful. The existing
media series use episode / partOfSeason / partOfSeries for these
purposes.

For the periodicals proposal we had suggested a new "hasPart" and a
genericized "isPartOf" property with CreativeWork as its range for a
similar purpose. SchemaBibEx had initially looked at the Series model
but ended up rejecting the at-the-time property-proliferating approach
of rolling partOfTVSeries / partOfRadioSeries properties for each kind
of series.  (Happily that approach was deprecated at some point after
our deliberations).

Perhaps a more generic Series would use something like "seriesMember"
(new property) and "partOfSeries" (with a genericized,
non-media-specific definition) or "isPartOf" (with a range made even
broader than CreativeWork)?
