I think that is currently the best practice, given the incomplete alignment with schema:Offer.

schema:Product is fine for those cases.

No, it is because the definition of schema:Product is

"Any offered product or service. For example: a pair of shoes; a concert ticket; the rental of a car; a haircut; or an episode of a TV show streamed online."

It is not falsely used, IMO.
