Note the outcome of PROV-ISSUE-203, which is also related to this topic.
I am proposing to close this issue, pending review.

Best regards,

We start with the term "Recipe" and replace it with ever more general terms that are unambiguous. We then accept the broadest possible term that cannot be confused with an occurrent.
