Maybe 'grumble' was a bit strong - I've noodled with product
description stuff in the past enough to gather it's pretty hard, and
'good enough' is impressive :)

differently is ProductOrService (and similarly structured related
classes). While in the context of selling stuff this combination fits
well, there are big differences nearby, e.g. physical characteristics,
means of delivery.

So given that OR is pretty straightforward in RDF(S),  I reckon p-s
could usefully be separated, though some finesse would be needed. A
non-breaking tweak would be to hang properties off these classes to
(somehow) state whether the thing in question was a Product or a
