Just a note that hadLocation has nothing to do with files (although it
could in theory be used for that) - it just links an prov:Entity to a
prov:Location.

In PROV-DM the location is given as a geographical place, but I think
we should also allow virtual locations like "on server X", "in file
Y", "in the United Nations meeting of 2011-05-12" - e.g. let further
specification prov:Location be outside of scope from PROV and up to
the extensions.
