Hi all,

I guess the lack of reaction means everyone agrees :-)

I may have trouble the very idea of representing oa:Annotation as direct result of the generating, as opposed to the direct result of annotating. But I'll clearly need some more time to get my head around it.

One trivial for now is replacing oa:generator with oa:generatedBy.
This makes the property seem very close to prov:wasGeneratedBy, in a context where OA and PROV would be used together. While they are quite different in reality: range of oa:generatedBy would be agent, range of prov:wasGeneratedBy is prov:Activity.
