In our last telecon we agreed on a list of objectives for the F2F meeting [1]. 
According to that list the Provenance Access and Query Task Force (PAQ TF) 
will discuss a draft on how provenance fits in the Web architecture.
The PAQ TF should start working on this draft as soon as possible (in parallel 
to the work done in the Model TF). To kickstart this activity I would like to 
bring up the following two proposals:

Proposal 1: The final report [2] of the W3C provenance incubator group contains 
a section on "Provenance in Web Architecture", Sec.6. The PAQ TF uses this 
section as foundation for the draft that we want to have for the F2F meeting. 
By "foundation" I mean as a first incomplete (and inofficial) draft.

If we agree on Proposal 1, then we may decide about:

Proposal 2: To initiate the development of Sec.6 [2] into the draft that we 
want to have for the F2F meeting, the PAQ TF performs the following four 

2.a) identify key terms in the overview section (Sec.6.1 [6]) and provide 
references to definitions of these terms (preferably referring to W3C 

2.b) exemplify the different options mentioned in Sec.6 [2] using the data 
journalism example [3]

2.c) brainstorm and discuss additional pros and cons for the different options 
mentioned in Sec.6 [2]

2.d) brainstorm and discuss additional options that are not mentioned in
Sec.6 [2] (if there are any)
