PROV-ISSUE-160 (TLebo): Redundant terminology in new wasDerivedFrom classification scheme [Data Model]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/160

Raised by: Timothy Lebo
On product: Data Model

[1] introduces a new classification scheme for wasDerivedFrom using two characteristics:

1) the number of activities that lead to a derivation
2) a level of "precision" i.e., the amount of description provided.


A) I propose to reduce the amount of redundant terms used to define derivation, so that the definitions may be clearer.

choose one: imprecise XOR lax
choose one: precise XOR exact
choose one: number of activities XOR degree


B) The previous versions' use of "Qualified" was a natural way to distinguish the simple descriptions from their more elaborate forms. Why did that seem to go away?

Regards,
Tim
