I think that's clearer. (I agree the original was a bit confusing.)

Hi Jim, Tim,

Given that specialization is the name of the relation we are defining, 
this may be confusing.

I would suggest two changes:

In the second sentence of the English definition:

In particular, the lifetime of the specialized entity contains that of any specialization
->
In particular, the lifetime of the entity being specialized  contains that of any specialization

and in the first bullet point

specific entity: an identifier (infra) of the specialized entity
->
specific entity: an identifier (infra) of the entity that is a specialization of the general entity (supra)


Thoughts?
Luc

Yes, specificEntity should read: 


specificEntity: an identifier (infra) of the specialization.

All,

I think I found a hiccup in the definition of specialization of.

I've illustrated it here: http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/File:SpecializationOf-bundle.png (and already discussed it with Luc and James).

Regards,
Tim
