PROV-ISSUE-263 (implicit-subject-problem): Implicit subject in Involvement causes mis-alignment [Ontology]


Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: Ontology

The mapping allows for a given qualified involvement (here usage u1) to be linked with different activities (here a1 and a2).

Used(u1, a1, e, attrs)
Used(u1, a2, e, attrs)

This applies for all forms of involvements.

The origin of the problem is that the object is explicit in an involvement but the subject is implicit (with property qualified).

solution? See my other issue (ISSUE-262) related to qualified.
It's likely that a solution can address both issues at once.
Either introduce functional property from involvement to subject, or restore hadUsage which should be inverse functional.
