PROV-ISSUE-57 (comment-on-ivp-of): comment on ivp of


Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: 

The revised
(w.r.t. http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/F2F1ConceptDefinitions#IVP_of)
treatment of IVP-of, and relabeling as "complement-of" completely
overturns my understanding of what this was intended to capture. I
understood the whole point of A IVP-of B was intended to capture the
notion that A denotes a contextually constrained form of the entity
denoted by B.  I don't see what useful purpose this relation serves.

>From a practical perspective, given the asymmetric nature of IVP-of
(as was) it is easy to express the effect of complement-of in RDF by
introducing a new entity node.  But I see no way of constructing the
strict constraining role of IVP using complement-of.
