Re: PROV-ISSUE-19: terminology for 'Invariant View or Perspective on a Thing'

I don't strongly mind "snapshot", but doesn't it sort of imply
something at an instant of time (as taken with camera)? We may have an
invariant view on a thing as it exists over a very long time, so
implying we refer to an instant might be confusing.

Though I don't have a better suggestion off the top of my head, but
will think more.

Thanks,
Simon
