Hi Khalid, Tim, Paulo

I am reviewing the property annotations on sub-properties of prov:tracedTo

Comments:

1) I think we should use rdfs:isDefinedBy to reference the latest PROV-DM document with an anchor to the section about the specific term.

2) Why define prov:category and prov:component annotations when a rdfs:isDefinedBy annotation would suffice and be easier for users to follow?

3) Why define the prov:inverse annotation?  Either we define inverse properties or we do not, but suggestions via annotations are not very useful.  Tools and queries cannot be constructed around suggestions via annotations.  I understand the issue of constructing queries using inverse properties when an endpoint may or may not support reasoning of inverse properties, but why define an annotation that approximates (half-heartedly) an existing OWL axiom?

4) There appears to be dual usage of the prov:qualifiedForm annotation.  It has been used to reference both the Involvement class and the property that references the Involvement class.  For example prov:wasAttributed to has a prov:qualifiedForm annotation referencing both prov:Attribution and prov:qualifiedAttribution.  Based on the description associated with prov:qualifiedForm, I think ti should only reference prov:Attribution.

Also, the comment on prov:qualifiedFrom should change 'prov:Involved subclass' -> 'prov:Involvement subclass'

'This annotation property links a prov:involved subproperty with a prov:Involved subclass.'

should be

'This annotation property links a prov:involved subproperty with a prov:Involvement subclass.'

This is an issue with prov:wasTracedTo and all its sub-properties.

In particular, was wasAttributedTo, wasDerivedFrom, derivedByInsertionFrom, derivedbyRemovalFrom, hadOriginalSource, wasQuotedFrom, and wasRevisionOf. Regarding the properties involved and involvee, the comments used for their annotation justify the existence of their su-properties, so I don't think we need to add justification for each of their direct sub-properties.
