PROV-ISSUE-164 (TLebo): pre-determined versus determined [Accessing and Querying Provenance]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/164

Raised by: Timothy Lebo
On product: Accessing and Querying Provenance

In http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/paq/provenance-access.html :

"Provenance assertions are about pre-determined activities involving entities; as such, they are not dynamic."


Is there something special about pre-determined that would be different from "determined"?

Could "pre-" be safely removed without losing meaning? It's not that we knew what was going to happen -- only that they already have happened, no?

Thanks,
Tim
