I forgot to formally answer the questions, but I did implicitly, so:

Questions:

- In constrast to the DM and PROV-O, the primer talks about "roles" rather than "qualified involvement" in general. The rationale is 
that it is a more intuitive starting point for readers new to PROV. However, two (internal WG) reviewers have both suggested that 
"qualified involvement" should be discussed instead. What is your opinion?

keep roles. that's what DM describes.

- Do you think the document is accessible to all the major communities who would want to adopt PROV or, if not, where are the 
deficiencies?

....it has actually passed a readability test with several different M.Sc. students now, to whom it's been useful as an intro to 
PROV-DM...

the primer could benefit from a graphical depiction of the examples. I think having a graph that grows progressively with the new 
elements added to the example would provide a more immediate perception and a complement to the narrative.

- Can the document be released as a next public working draft? If no, what are the blocking issues?

adding figures before release would not be much work and may pay off well
