Hey

(sorry, I messed something up with the email addresses - I sent some mails to 
the old XG list - it should be fixed now)

In the Provenance Vocabulary prv:performedAt is a possible property of a 
prv:Execution (representing the completed execution of a process). Thus,
yes, prv:performedAt refers to the time at which the execution took place.

The rdfs:range of prv:performedAt is xsd:dateTime. Hence, it is instaneous. 
And (before you ask ;)  we always understood this instant to refer to the 
point in time when the execution completed - we should make that more
explicit in the documentation.

The Provenance Vocabulary has nothing for durations.

If the prv:Execution is a prv:DataCreation and the prv:DataItem has been 
prv:createdBy that, then yes.
