Hi All,

Sorry for being silent on the requirements document.

I wanted to propose the  flagship use cases below for the organization 
of the requirements and get your thoughts on them. If we can agree on 
the general high-level use case then we can start filling them out. I'm 
pretty sure that each flag ship can pretty much include most of what's 
covered in the use cases I've listed with them without too much addition.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Paul


1) Creating and advertising a blog post
A user Bob creates a blog post that contains a quote from another blog, 
a snippet from the New York Times, a couple of pictures (one from Flickr 
and one from his hard drive). He advertises the post using a tiny url 
using Twitter. The tweet is then modified and retweeted by one of his 
followers Sarah, which is then  subsequently quoted in dozens of other 
blogs around the web.

2) Evidence for public policy
I think we should expand the Use Case Scenario described in 
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_Evidence_for_Public_Policy 
to consider the following other use cases:

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_private_data_use

3) Compliance with Business Contracts and Regulations
I think expanding on the scenario described in 
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_Fulfilling_Contractual_Obligations 
would be good. It could be made concrete with respect to the scenario 
described in 
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_Evidence_for_Engineering_Design

It could be expanded to cover:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_Hidden_Bug
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Use_Case_Crosswalk_Maintenance (recreating 
what happened in the process)
