      Paul, I just recently discussed something like that with dpa regarding EventsML-G2:

      - for fine grained descriptions of a concept use the <related> property (be aware: the <facet> is intended to refine the type of the concept, e.g. if the type is "person" you may add the facet "male" to it.)

      - a <related> property provides:
      -- a @rel to express the kind of relationship, e.g. "numberOfSeats"
      -- a @qcode or a @literal for the value

      This way you could add e.g.

      <related rel="poiProps:noOfSeats" literal="83" />

      <related rel="poiProps:operator" qcode="pacompanies:UCI" />

      (What I discussed with dpa: this way you can also add the CEO of a company - and more)

      I still consider the G2 design as covering many, many requirements, this way you can avoid introducing new properties, you only have to add the corresponding taxonomies for relationships.
