thanks. that makes sense.

We can add your example as something that is invalid. One needs to

i think in general it's useful to provide some invalidation pointers. even
something like bundle of bundle should be pointed to as invalid. i just
reread the bundles section in prov-dm it doesn't explicitly rule out
nesting and in prov-constraints it's somewhat indirect. for container
datatypes, it might a good thing to explicitly state nesting considerations.
