PROV-ISSUE-89 (what-entity-attributes): How do we find the attributes of an entity? [Formal Model]

The conceptual model defines an entity in terms of an identifier and a list of attribute-value pairs. It is indeed crucial for the asserter to identify the attributes that have been frozen in a given entity.

Currently, the ontology does not seem to identify these attributes.

To say that these attributes could be found by looking at all the properties for this entity does not work with an open world assumption.

What mechanism do we have to identify these attributes?
