I've been reading some of the discussion of Issue 89:

   http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/89

which seems to my mind be getting rather like a counting of angels-on-pinheads, 
and I wonder if we're not in danger of over-ontologizing here.

Going back to the original issue, I see:

[[
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.
]]

Why is it so crucial to identify what attributes have been frozen?

What practical application of provenance is prevented is we don't require this?
