PROV-ISSUE-26 (uses and generates questions): How can one figure out the provenance of a given entity?

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/26

Raised by: Paulo Pinheiro da Silva
On product: 

Context:
1. P uses A 
2. P uses B
3. P generates C
4. C derived from A

If the provenance of C is the concern of a user of C (as opposed to the provenance of a process that generates C), one may have the following questions:

1) What the “uses” and “generates” relationships are adding to one’s understanding of C if something is wrong with C?
2) Can we infer that A was derived by the execution of process P? How?
