Hi,
The following are my comments for Section 5.3.2.1 of the PROV-DM (as on Nov 28):

Section 5.3.2.1
1. "For example, a programmer and a researcher could both be associated with running a workflow, but it may not matter what programmer clicked the button to start the workflow while it would matter a lot what researcher told the programmer to do so. Another example: a student publishing a web page describing an academic department could result in both the student and the department being agents associated with the activity, and it may not matter what student published a web page but it matters a lot that the department told the student to put up the web page. So there is some notion of responsibility that needs to be captured." 

Comment: There is no reason to assign more importance to researcher or department versus the programmer or student - these are purely application-specific interpretations and cannot be generalized. A simple counter-example is, "there was error on the Web page", which student is responsible for adding content to the Web page.

Thanks.

Best,
Satya
