Hi all,

Following yesterday's discussion on roles,  I made the following changes
to prov-dm [1] .

1. Definition: A role is the function of an entity or agent with respect 
to an activity, in the context of a usage, generation, invalidation, 
association, start, and end.

2. Now roles are permitted in: Usage, Generation, Invalidation, 
Association, Start, and End

3. Removed example of role in attribution, replaced it by type

I am closing this issue pending review.

Luc
