Hi Satya,

I don't understand your comment. We use 'for example', 'may,' 'could' 
... to describe
a hypothetical scenario/application. The only generalization is that we 
*may* want to
express a notion of responsibility.

Can you clarify?

"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.
