@makxdekkers In an attribution relation wasAttributedTo(id; e, ag, attrs), "_the identifier (ag) of the agent whom the entity is ascribed to, and therefore bears some responsibility for its existence_" (PROV-DM).
Moreover, the activity that generated the entity is not expressed but it _is_ implied. The implicit activity is associated with the agent of the attribution: the PROV-DM definition reads: "_When an entity e is attributed to agent ag, entity e was generated by some unspecified activity that in turn **was associated to** agent ag_". 

A dedicatee (MARC relator) cannot be said to be an agent to whom the entity was attributed. Same for "collector" and many, many other MARC relators. Or take 'stakeholder' (CI Role).
