in the TourPack project we have one question we'd like to discuss with the
community regarding packaging offers in schema.org. For us a package is a
set of offers provided to the user, what typically expedia.com offers, for

So, looking the the current options we have:

* In principle the class schema:Offer [2] can be used with that purposed by
composing offers using the itemOffered property [3]; but the range is
Product/Service, not Offer.

* The semantics of AggregateOffer [4] is more about different offer over
the same item, either Product or Service; so I think we can discard it.

Therefore we have the question if we may need a new class (OfferPackage?)
that, being a subClassOf Offer, would address that particular meaning or we
simply stick with Offer.

For now we just want to discuss the issue. But if the community agrees on
the need of such class, we'll of course provide a proposal to the schema.

Looking forward to your feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Alfonso and Sergio
