Thanks, this is looking much better and more concise.

Should we add an example about the optional activity?
simplified as PROV-N:


In this example, filling fuel was started as a consequence of
observing the low fuel. The trigger entity is unspecified, it could
for instance have been the low fuel warning light, the fuel tank
indicator needle position, or the engine not running properly.


agent(ex:driver, [prov:type="prov:Person" %% xsd:QName)
wasAssociatedWith(ex:filling-fuel, ex:driver)
wasAssociatedWith(ex:observing-low-fuel, ex:driver)

wasStartedBy(ex:filling-fuel, -, ex:observing-low-fuel)
