I was just taking and tweaking a bit the current description of provider: “The person or organization providing the service, reservation, or creative work. The provider may subcontract out the service.”

Richard, can you explain what the 'subcontract' bit is about? Are you saying that one should encode the provider, not the subcontractor?

My gut feeling is that knowing who has subcontracted to whom may be a bridge too far, so maybe provider should just be... who you wish to call the provider.

Maybe “The person or organization providing the service, item, product,
reservation, or creative work. The provider may subcontract out the
supply of such.” - would be fractionally better.

Building on your suggestions, I would be tempted to change the
description of ‘provider' to “The person or organization providing the
service, item, reservation, or creative work. The provider may
subcontract out the supply of such.”,
