Hi Tim,

All interpretation constraints have now been illustrated and presented
in section
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/model/ProvenanceModel.html#interpretation


I think the constraint is correctly expressed, since the record 
wasStartedBy(a2,a1) does not
identify the entity e, and its generation event. If we had made it 
explicit, then yes, what
you suggest is probably right.

I don't think any further change is required, and I propose
to close the issue, pending review.

Regards,
Luc
