GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] Extending GoodRelations with site-specific properties

Thank you to share this private exchange on the list, 
I suppose you wanted some feedback, here are my two cents:
As an european citizen (like you), I can't understand why the US ISIC codes can be listed as an official property [1]

And not NACE codes, their official counterpart in the European Union ?
re. your 4 requirements, ISIC does not comply with #3 either

If ISIC code is useful to american businesses using GR, I bet NACE would be also useful in EU countries too...

Regarding "the open door to anything" argument, I don't think we'll see dozens of international products and services general classifications popping up everywhere
perhaps one or two more from asia or africa and then ?...

other things related :

- The CPV EU vocabulary (well an, EU-funded project) is already using GR [2]
- The EU Core Business Vocabulary effort could link to GR at some point [3]

Best regards, and thanks for all your work on GR

> Here is my reply:
> First, we always appreciate suggestions to improve GoodRelations, sincerely!
> However, we usually add new elements to GoodRelations only if there will be significant amounts of actual data based on that.
> So extensions to the core GoodRelations vocabulary require that at least one of the following conditions hold:
> - The extension will be used by at least one major adaptor (e.g. a large site).
> - The extension will be used by many smaller users (e.g. a frequent request or common need).
> - The extension will expand the application domain of a GoodRelations element, i.e. it will make it more generically usable (e.g. details of payment methods that are needed for hotel prices).
> - The extension makes GoodRelations more beautiful ;-)
> The reasons for that is that keeping a vocabulary as small as possible is an important goal for us.
