It reads very nicely.

A few minor notes appended.

The examples section 3 really needs a diagram.  I also think showing
the examples in PROV-N would be easier to read than PROV-O.  I really
like the idea of including both PROV-O and PROV-N inline with
hide/show buttons rather than in the appendix.

Roles is better for the primer.

Yes.

   The 'same' activity is jarring given our definition of activity.  It
   is a different activity.

   perhaps just

   ...using another compilation activity.
