Hello PROV-O team,

Here's my quick review of the PROV-O ontology, as requested last telecon.

In general, it seems fine.

It seems odd that hadLocation has a domain of owl:Thing. So what is
it's connection to provenance?

What does it mean that hasAnnotation does not have a specified domain
(my ignorance of RDFS)? If it means that it applies to anything, then
what is the distinction between using hasAnnotation and just giving an
arbitrary non-prov RDF statement? What is its connection to

The old W3C 2006 Time namespace is still used/included. Is use of this
ontology to be removed in the next revision?

I notice that comments (at least for adoptedPlan) still refer to
