We've gone around variations of this one a few times, e.g. long
threads on 'social account', blog, official page etc. There are a
number of overlapping and slippery concepts that people would like to
capture better. But each time we add a new property it needs
distinguishing from all those we already have, and you can make a case
that 'url' and 'sameAs' are already substantially in this area
already. The more recent WebSite type adds another option too.

Could a blog or facebook page or twitter account or youtube account be
a "homepage"? Is being on someone's business card evidence enough?
I'm not saying 'no', rather that discussions on this topic have a
history of churning...
