Sounds good to me - but should we then not rename it from
wasGeneratedBy to wasGenerated ?

Btw - is it 'OK' that the PROV-ASN is filled with various optional
parameters at positions which makes it hard to build any kind of
deterministic parser?

(Ie. how would I know that it's a wasGeneratedBy(entity, activity,
time) and not wasGeneratedBy(id, entity, time) ? )
