I'm not sure - now we can't have a planned activity without an agent -
so there will be phantom agents appearing.

There is also no way to say that the associated agent is actually
*performing* the activity. And so we only know that an agent performed
something with relation to the activity, and that something might or
might not have been following the associated plan.

These are DM issues, though.. so you can close this issue. I would
have to think of a good use-case of a plan/recipe which there is no
agent following - perhaps that's not possible?
