PROV-ISSUE-201: Section 8 (PROV-DM as on Dec 5) [prov-dm]

Hi,
The following are my comments for Section 8 of the PROV-DM (as on Dec 5)

Section 8.
1. "A resource is an instance of an entity in the world."

Comment: This is not correct. Resource, identified by a URI, can include abstractions, for example class of instances - Car, Computer etc.

2. "A given identifier identifies a single entity within the scope of an account. Hence, below, all entities records have been given the same identifier but appear in the scope of different accounts."

Comment: This is clearly against the notion of strict monotonicity in RDF as defined in RDF Semantics specification. In addition, this is also opposite to the global scope of URIs as described in the Web Architecture (I had raised this issue earlier also). 

Thanks.

Best,
Satya
