Hi Paul,

This issue has been open for a while now. Your original suggestions have 
been incorporated.

Unfortunately, very little debate has occurred about these. We don't 
have a mechanism to
decide whether a relation should be included in PROV-DM or whether it 
belongs to an application
specific extension. We don't know either when we have reached a 
"complete" set of relations.

Nevertheless, I propose to close this issue.

Thoughts?

Luc

For practical use and uptake, it would be good to have definitions of these in the provenance model. These concepts should be defined in terms of the already existing "core" concepts. Below I list several and their definitions along with some justification for their introduction. Note, what these allow are simple provenance assertions that are compatible with the more complex model that we have been devising.
