Re: [dxwg] Provenance information [RPIF] (#76)

I think we should consider here cases where "provenance" is expressed in a discursive way - e.g., when describing the dataset lineage (as mentioned in [UC9](

This is quite a common practice for scientific data and in some domains, as the geospatial one. In most cases, these lineage descriptions are such that they cannot be easily converted into a machine-actionable representation.

In DCAT-AP, this is done by using `dct:provenance`/`dct:ProvenanceStatement`/`rdfs:label`, and according to the [report on DCAT-AP usage statistics from the European Data Portal](, this information is included in more than 50% of the EDP records (391,616).

It may be worth considering its inclusion in DCAT.
