PROV-ISSUE-236 (TLebo): rendered provenance is a thing in the world [prov-dm]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/236

Raised by: Timothy Lebo
On product: prov-dm

I have concerns about the phrasing of the following:

"In this example, the attribute-value pairs do not constitute a representation of something in the world; they are just used to help render provenance."

I would argue that the rendered provenance glyph on the screen _is_ a thing in the world and that the properties "[ex:color="blue", ex:screenX=20, ex:screenY=30]" are describing _that_ instead of the entity.

I suggest rephrasing it to something like:

"In this example, the attribute-value pairs are not part of the entity's characterization within this assertion. Instead, the attribute-value pairs are describing how the characterization has or could be rendered in a user interface."

Thanks,
Tim
