          o This issue is a follow-on to issue ISSUE-447 (subactivity)
            <http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ResponsesToPublicComments#ISSUE-447_.28subactivity.29>
          o The working group has decided that it would not specify a
            "subactivity" relationship between activities.
          o Therefore this suggestion will not be adopted.

> The term "generation" implies an activity that takes place over time. In fact, the definition acknowledges this, as it specifies the point in time when generation is complete to distinguish use of the term to mean the entire generation activity. This is confusing.
