+1 Proposal Beta


> consumer <> buyer <> broker <> seller <> provider

looks to me like very nice way to draw distinctions between various roles!


> Proposal Alpha
> Deprecate all other uses of provider under a new property
"serviceProvider".

why Product can't have provider, does schema:manufacturer acts as
equivalent property for products?


> The domain would be: BusTrip, Flight, Reservation, Service, TrainTrip

adding TaxiTrip, FerryTrip, Rideshare etc. would require adjusting
domain every time, maybe worth introducing Trip and moving all specific
transport modes to subtypes? similar to http://schema.org/Reservation
