Describing, naming, or identifying?

Which is what I would use for a name.

I would recommend as best practice to use rdfs:label for a name, dc:identifier for an identifier, and dc:description for a description.

I would not recommend using prov:value to mean a name.

Also, unless I am missing something in the example, it does not currently use prov:value, nor do I see where prov:value as a name would logically be used.
