PROV-ISSUE-39 (generation-identifiable-activity): Generation should be defined as an identifable activity [Conceptual Model]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/39

Raised by: Paul Groth
On product: Conceptual Model

Currently, Generation is introduced as follows:

"Generation represents the creation of a new characterized entity by an activity."

However, the definition requires a reference to a process execution. Given that process execution is defined as an "identifiable activity", it would seem to be better to change the definition to:

"Generation represents the creation of a new characterized entity by an identifiable activity."
