PROV-ISSUE-86 (High-level-overview): The conceptual model needs a high level overview [Conceptual Model]

Raised by: Graham Klyne
On product: Conceptual Model

A "50,000-foot view" of the conceptual model would greatly aid being able to understand it.  This would be concise and show how the various concepts introduced can work together.  A good example of the sort of thing I mean is the diagram at http://open-biomed.sourceforge.net/opmv/ns.html#sec-desc

None of the concepts introduced is really meaningful in isolation:  it's the compositions of constructs that express useful (provenance) information, and the possibilities for composition are hard to discern from the isolated concept descriptions.
