that is indeed the expected mapping to RDFS, however I am not sure such language-specific mapping should be mentioned/ recommended 
in PROV-DM?

Should we avoid reinventing the wheel? Can we say somewhere that "type" SHOULD BE considered as rdf:type, and RDFS should be used to handle subtyping semantics and inference?
