PROV-ISSUE-505: Data Model Section 3   [prov-dm]


Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: prov-dm



"PROV-N is a notation aimed at human consumption … The interpretation of PROV-N arguments is defined according to their position in the list of arguments. This convention allows for a compact notation." IMO, the goal of human consumption trumps compact notation and using positional arguments hinders the former for the benefit of the latter. See also my comments on the PROV-N spec, especially regarding named attributes.

Example 15 shows a semicolon used to separate the optional identifier from the rest of the arguments. This is not consistent with the PROV-N spec.
