HI Luc,
I don't beieve that we should model it on specific domains. I would leave
the core
vocabulary as generic as possible, providing examples/guidelines on how to
extend it
on different domains (although that last activity looks more like a task for
the
Implementation and test cases task force).

Also, does the conceptual provenance tracking apply for the news example?
Would it be
like tracking the provenance of a rumour or an idea? I remember that in the
last telecon
I thought that it made sense to record it, but now I'm not that sure when I
look to real
use cases.

Best,
Daniel
