Because we had a WG resolution ages ago that we would use verbs in
past tense for edges.


We've ignored this rule for prov:agent/entity/activity as they are
really a kind of rdf:object for the reified triple.


One of the reason for this is that earlier we had some involvements
(like prov:Derivation) that had both entities and activities, and it
was unclear which of those properties was the 'real' involvement that
we were qualifying.
