I sent a message to LDP:

Responses so far:
[[
not yet, but it certainly is a problem we will have to address and
solve eventually. whether that means adopting a standard/convention
that is provided to us, or using our own ad-hoc solution, is not
something that is clear yet, as there isn't one obvious and stable
standard out there that we can simply adopt.

[[
Translation: you don't know if it would be modeled using RDF and
expressed using markup syntaxes associated with the aforementioned
model. A valid question. One that needs to be answered sooner rather
than later.

I propose that the current text is probably as good as we can achieve for the 
moment.  I've added  note to the PROV-AQ document:
[[
We expect the presentation of service descriptions to be considered by the W3C 
Linked data Platform group (www.w3.org/2012/ldp/); at the time of writing, there 
is no consensus (cf. message at 
lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ldp/2012Nov/0036.html and responses). As and 
when such consensus emerges, we recommend that provenance service implementers 
consider adopting it, or at least consider making their implementations 
compatible with it.
]]

I'm changing the issue status to PENDING REVIEW.
