Luc,

On the call today, we set aside concerns about CompleteDictionary, since there were not enough voiced objections.

However, I still have concerns about DM's "too specific" restriction on hadMember, which is between a Dictionary and a KeyValuePair.

I've copied the essence of the concern from a previous email, below.

For a model with interoperability as it's primary objective, 
I'm amazed that the DM precludes one from putting members into Collections, and only permits users to put members into its specialization(subclass), Dictionary.

Why block this interoperability AND extensibility?

I think the current modeling in PROV-O is a reasonable compromise to "leave the option open" to extend Collection, while "maintaining the scope" of this WG focusing on Dictionary.

Thanks,
Tim
