Adding a gtin12 property to ? (based on existing gtin8, gtin13, gtin14)

Hi GS1 team, (/cc W3C community group)

We have an open issue "Evaluate addition of gtin12"

Mark Harrison previously provided some useful comments, copied in the blog post.

Excerpting, "gtin12 is no less important than gtin13, so if you
already have properties for gtin8, gtin13 and gtin14, then
I see no valid reason not to define a gtin12 property directly, for
completeness, rather than coerce people to use a schema:gtin13

We are just wrapping up the next version of now, and need
to decide whether to bump this to future Q2 work or try to squeeze it
in. From all I read, adding a gtin12 property makes sense. And we
already have gtin8, gtin14, gtin13 in In
for a penny, in for a pound.

Would the following definition work (and be accurate)?

"The GTIN-12 code
<> of the product,
or the product to which the offer refers. See GS1 GTIN Summary
<> for more details."

Are there any complications (as listed in )
that we ought to document, if we do this?

Thanks for any advice,
