Thank you for your feedback. This is another interesting use case for
the pairing of demand/offers.

Usually I would have started with an extension of an existing type
(using the extension mechanism) but I thought this one is so basic that
we can discuss the need of it right away.

As far as I could see this seems to be the right place for proposals
like this, so I would be happy to hear some more opinions.
