I guess that for every categorization, whether you use shop=x or,
sell=x;y;z or sell:x=yes someone will come by and want to divide that
category into two. So x will be split into x' and x'', both
subcategories of x, until we end up with the categories containing
exactly one product :-)

imho we should stay pragmatic and not to try to add too much detail.
In the end the user will still have to consult the pricelist of the
shop to see whether she wants the specific product for the price
offered by the store and whether the product is available at the
moment of the purchase.
