First of all, thumbs up for the prov-o team. This is a very good 
document. I consider this ready for release as of PROV-O as Last Call.
I only have some minor comments listed below. The document reads well, 
is clearly structured and the examples and scenario are clear. 
Furthermore, I suggest to keep the cross references with the PROV-DM, 

Minor comments on PROV-O:

Section 1: Introduction

Second paragraph,first and last sentence are the same. "PROV-O conforms 
to the OWL-RL profile and is lightweight so that ..."

Section 3.1: Starting Point Terms and Section 3.2: Expanded Terms and 
Section 4.1 (prov:Agent)

Examples: <mailto:derek@example.org> instead of <mailto:dererk@example.org>

Section 3.2: Expanded Terms

Figure 2: Location arrow is not connected to any class.

Section 3.3: Qualified Terms

I would consider putting the example before the two tables listing the 
properties that can be qualified. This makes the section easier to read 
and to understand, otherwise you get the tables right away and get lost 
in them.

"In subfigure a the ... of prov:Usage, which in turn ..." instead of "in 

Section 4

prov:alternateOf, prov:mentionOf, prov:specializationOf: Definition is 
wrong, maybe not yet cleared out?

prov:ActivityInfluence, prov:AgentInfluence, prov:EntityInfluence 
:Definition is missing here, but they are given a little later at 
prov:activity, prov:agent and prov:entity. Just a little confusing, when 
reading the document.

prov:ProvenanceService, prov:hasAnchor, prov:hasProvenance, 
prov:hasProvenanceService, prov:provenanceURITemplate: These properties 
need to be introduced. (They come from PAQ, thus maybe a link to PAQ?)
