How does schema.org credits the source of types and properties that come
from external models ? taking the example of the property "brand", I see it
has an RDFa dc:source property, linking to the original GoodRelations
ontology :

    <div typeof="rdfs:Class" resource="http://schema.org/Brand">
      <span class="h" property="rdfs:label">Brand</span>
      <span property="rdfs:comment">A brand is a name used by an
organization or business person for labeling a product, product group, or
       <span>Subclass of: <a property="rdfs:subClassOf" href="
       <span>Source:  <a property="dc:source" href="

The FAQ says "Many terms in schema.org came through collaborations, and we
acknowledge these on the schema.org site...". However I can't find this
source information anywhere in the website. Will it be added in future
versions ?

When designing/proposing an extension, I would like users to be able to
navigate/look at the source model; can I include links to the source model
in the properties description ?
