I tried my hand at modeling the provenance of the U.S. Supreme Court's current membership, and its derivation to it's first membership.

The wiki page for the example is at:


In an attempt to take a fresh look at how we're modeling dictionaries (and collections?), I didn't reference PROV-DM, PROV-O, or any other examples or documentation -- I just tried to describe the subject matter.

How does it look?

I'd like to move PROV-O (and DM, if it needs tweaking) towards this kind of modeling and naming.

Discussion and feedback encouraged.

Later today, I'll try to start from scratch on the DM and work through the current PROV-O modeling, and then the recent threads on this topic.
I hope by then we can converge on a satisfactory design.
