I was trying to reserve participation for the case when a thing
interacted with/was changed by a process execution, which would cover
both agency and situations such as 'document participates in edit
activity'. That still has edit used version1 and version2 generated by
edit, and if version 1 and 2 are IVPs of document, then document
participates in edit.
So if used(y, pe)  and ivpOf(x,y)  then participates(pe,y)... (apologies
if I've flipped arguments the wrong way - y is the document, not the

Thus control would be a form of participation, but used and generated
would not be.
