PROV-ISSUE-47 (third-party-provenance): How to obtain provenance from a third party known by the user [Accessing and Querying Provenance]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/47

Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: Accessing and Querying Provenance

I don't understand how the proposal allows us to address http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvenanceAccessScenario.

Specifically, I consider the case where the user wants to access provenance from a third-party they know (e.g. a favorite consumer group).

Using section 3, I can obtain one or more provenance-uris, which are known from the responding server or the document creator. 

If my third-party is not known by the responding server or document creator, I have no mechanism to obtain a provenance-uri since I don't have have an identifier for the document I currently hold.

A solution could be: we need a BOB-identifier to be passed around (as suggested in ISSUE-46) and a mechanism that resolves a BOB-identifier to provenance-uri.
