My understanding is that the data model and ontology terms are defined separately from the constraints that underpin some inferences about provenance that are believed to be useful.  But we don't want to prohibit someone from using and publishing provenance data without taking care of all the niceties (the "scruffy" approach).

Describe the bundle to say such?
