How to interpret PROV-XML's //prov:actedOnBehalfOf/prov:activity/@prov:ref


I'm trying to decipher what the prov:activity element on a prov:actedOnBehalfOf element means in terms of PROV-O.
claims to be derived from example 37 of
and includes the XML fragment:

    <prov:delegate prov:ref="ag1"/>
    <prov:responsible prov:ref="ag2"/>
    <prov:activity prov:ref="a"/>
    <prov:type xsi:type="xsd:QName">line-management</prov:type>

but the DM example does not seem to include this kind of assertion.

Perhaps Delegation.xml should cite 's example 38?

Does the prov:activity element imply:

<ag1> prov:wasAssociatedWith <a> .

or, generally:

prov:delegate/@prov:ref prov:wasAssociatedWith prov:activity/@prov:ref .

If not, why is prov:activity permitted on prov:actedOnBehalfOf?
