Re: [dxwg] Provenance information [RPIF]

@rob-metalinkage @larsgsvensson we have long-used precedence with instances of software being `prov:Plan` (subClassOf `prov:Entity`) objects used to guide a prov:Activity that then produces things and an executing agent, like a server, being a `prov:Agent`. This is shown in quick outline in the RDA Provenanc ePatterns WG's pattern 18: 

I have run this pattern of the instance of software used being modelled as a `prov:Plan` and the execution system running it being a `prov:Agent` or a `prov:SoftwareAgent` past several original members of PROV (Luc, & Paolo) as well as many PROV practitioners over many years and it works fine although it wasn't expressly catered for in the 2013 PROV publications.

The pattern is generalisable to include methods other than software, such as scientific methods.

I will re-document that pattern for the RDA WG in more detail shortly.
