PROV-ISSUE-142 (Tlebo): Can roles only be Literals? [Data Model]


Raised by: Timothy Lebo
On product: Data Model

prov-dm, 5.5.1 Qualifier:

"The value associated with a role attribute must be conformant with Literal."

Will this prevent PROV-O from using URIs to cite roles?

Restricting roles to literals will be severely limiting for PROV-O and semantic web applications, since literals cannot be described or served as linked data, and thus consumers will be unable to determine more information about what the role means.
