prov:SoftwareAgent   carries [...]  "It might also be used for the
object of the oa:annotatedBy for machine learning generated
annotations."

Well, yes it might. But the sentence would be just as correct, with
less of a prescriptive feel, if "learning" were omitted. It seems odd
to have such a needlessly specific example.

Symmetric discourse here would be   "It would typically be used for
the object of the oa:annotatedBy for machine generated annotations.
