Hi all,

I don't quite get the rationale behind subclasses of 
http://schema.org/LocalBusiness. For instance, in AutomotiveBusiness, 
BankOrCreditUnion, or even TelevisionStation, there are examples of 
businesses as entities, which can have their own local places (branches, 
shops, etc), but for which one needs to model the organisation as a 
whole (e.g., Mc Donald's as a global corporation, having thousands of 
restaurants, ie, instances of LocalBusiness, everywhere).

How do you expect to deal with such a distinction? To have a 
"LocalBusiness" that has the headquarters as schema:address? Or am I 
missing something?

Thank you in advance for any help,

Marco.
