In the real world we have 'projects' (or similar ongoing activities), within which there are more specific or atomic activities. The prov model focuses on the latter - the atomic events. Nevertheless there appears to be a quite common requirement to _describe_ the bigger (project) context instead of (or in addition to) the atomic events. It's not that the latter don't exist conceptually of course, just the appropriate level of detail for the application does not necessarily match the viewpoint that guided the prov model implementation.

IMO however the prov model still applies at the coarser level - all the properties of a prov:Activity are relevant to projects or ongoing activities - and the only key addition needed is an activity-nesting predicate or two.
