Hi Jun, all.
I think that it refers to the *generation provenance *that you talk about in

the last lines of your definition. Having "generation" as a concept would
allow to add more metadata about when was a resource/resource state/resource
state representation
generated, where, etc.

If we treat the generation as a property, we will have to add more
properties
to describe the generation of the resource (like wasGeneratedAtTime,
wasGeneratedAtPlace, etc).
Daniel
