Nevertheless, many of the mismatches are things that can be handled by changing one of the products and then (if needed) updating the mapping, but can't be fixed just by changing the mapping.  The reason I wrote the guidelines was that I want to avoid having the mapping become a dumping ground for issues that really "belong" to other products,

+1, I am probably guilty of dumping others comments into the ProvRDF, because I don't know which they go to. The comments in ProvRDF should get moved to ISSUES as we know what the problem is.

I am happy to change the guidelines if you think my approach can be improved.  It seems that most of the issues you raised were really about the ontology, so I am happy with your response of re-raising against the ontology.
