This doesn't really do it for me. In particular I don't understand:
- why is "indication" in italics? how is it to be interpreted?
-" Separate provenance descriptions/may/describe different membership. Such conflicting information is to be handled by application 
specific reasoning." this is trying to tell me something in between the lines, it is not clear to me.

I propose the following:

"The attributecomplete <http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/model/prov-dm.html#membership.complete>is optional. It is 
interpreted as follows:
- if it is present and set to true, then c is known to include all and only the members specified in the key-entity-set.
- if it is present and set to false, then c is known to include more members in addition to those specified in the key-entity-set,
- if it is not present, then c is known to include all the members specified in the key-entity-set, and possibly more."
