PROV-ISSUE-383 (how-to-handle-subtypes): How to handle subtypes in PROV-DM [prov-dm]

PROV-DM defines a variety of subtypes and handles them differently.

Some have an explicit prov-n construct (I think for those, it's a legacy
of the past, when signatures were not uniform).

Some are explicitly represented in UML diagrams, some are not.
Some are listed in table 4.

                          PROV-N      in UML  in Table 4
