PROV-ISSUE-40 (recommended-roles): Roles should not be SHOULD and not MUST [Conceptual Model]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/40

Raised by: Paul Groth
On product: Conceptual Model

Currently, roles are required for Generation, Use, and isControlledby.

Specifically the following sentence is given:

"Use, Generation, and Control assertions must contain a role."

It is not clear why roles must always be there. In some cases, I may not want to assert the role that something played with respect to a process.

Suggested resolution is to replace MUST with SHOULD.
