Just to de-lurk here, to mention that Schema.org is still growing, and
we're discussing extensions and improvements over in the Web Schemas group
on W3C's public-vocabs@w3.org list. I maintain a list of current proposals
in http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/SchemaDotOrgProposals and
http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas has links to issue tracking, mailing list
info etc. I've also dropped a cross-link into the Wiki at

If there are any improvements to schema.org that will improve its
usefulness here, don't hesitate to ask.
