PROV-ISSUE-112 (prov-in-get): provenance information in GET message [Accessing and Querying Provenance]

The document says: 

For a document accessible using HTTP, provenance information may be indicated using an HTTP Link header field, as defined by Web Linking (RFC 5988) [LINK-REL]. The Link header field is included in the HTTP response to a GET or HEAD operation.

However, the resource serialization may be generated on demand, following a GET request. Hence, its provenance may need to make a reference to the GET request itself.  

We should allow for provenance information to be included in HTTP Get messages also.
