Hi James,

It was indeed  a purely editorial request.
I was suggesting to add a link like this:

Replace:

The identifier field <span class="name">id</span> is a <span 
class="conditional">KEY</span> for
   the <span class="name">entity(id,attrs)</span> statement.

with

The identifier field <a 
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/prov-dm/#entity.id"><span 
class="name">id</span></a> is a <span class="conditional">KEY</span> for
   the <span class="name">entity(id,attrs)</span> statement.

Similar ids have been predefined in prov-dm:

activity.id,
agent.id,
generation.id,
...


Thanks,
Luc
