No ;-}

Currently  all actions are simply “a :Action” and we do not (in the ontology) make any difference with Actions for Perms/Prohibs and those for Duties.
We only make this distinction in the specification.

There is also some wide-review feedback to also remove this distinction from the specification [1].

The argument being, for example, that we should not stop anyone using “delete” as a Permission, or Prohibition, or Duty.
