(since identifiers are getting confusing, I'm rewriting my email and reorganizing the order of examples from top to bottom).

Luc/DM's prov-n:


>>> bundle tool:analysis01     # found at http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/model/working-copy/wd6-contextualization.html
>>>  contextualizationOf(tool:Bob1, ex:Bob, ex:run1)
>>> endBundle

would get encoded in prov-o as:


>>> tool:analysis01 {
>>>     tool:Bob1 
>>>         prov:specializationOf [
>>>               a prov:Entity;  prov:ContextualizedEntity;

>>>               prov:inContext ex:run1;
>>>         ];
>>>     .
>>> }

read "tool:Bob1 in tool:analysis01 is a specialization of the thing with identifier ex:Bob over in bundle ex:run1".

would get re-encoded to prov-n as:

>> contextualizationOf(anonymous, ex:Bob, ex:run1)
>> alternateOf(tool:Bob1,  anonymous )
