Thanks, Luc.

Do you consider Derivation an QualifiedInvolvement / Event?

In that case, the QualifiedInvolvement should reference the Activity that caused the derived Entity.
And that same Activity could be referenced by multiple Derivation QualifiedInvolvement / Events.

If that sounds reasonable to you, I think I could be happy with that.

Regards,
Tim
