Hello All,

I'd like to add a bit to your holiday reading by pointing you to the W3C 
Provenance Incubator Groups final report.

Provenance XG Final Report
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/XGR-prov-20101214/

The report highlights the requirements for provenance for the web and 
semantic web and organizes the current state of the art. A key part of 
the report is a roadmap for provenance on the web.

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/XGR-prov-20101214/#A_Roadmap_for_Provenance_on_the_Web

Concretely, it recommends the formation of a Provenance Interchange 
Working Group focused on developing a *simple* common standard to 
interchange and access provenance leveraging existing provenance 
vocabularies and ontologies.

I would be great to hear your thoughts on this proposal.

Thanks,
Paul
