RE: provenance of provenance

+1 to the proposals.

I especially think it is a preferable to remove annotations because, in their current form, it is unclear why they are special to provenance.

As a minor point, I suggest that the current bundle definition could be better phrased. The current text is grammatically a bit clumsy ("an entity to allow") and may suggest that a bundle consists of two things: a named set and an entity.

I think phrasing closer to that used in Section 4.6.2 would be clearer, e.g.
  "A bundle is a named set of provenance descriptions, and is itself an entity, so allowing provenance of provenance to be expressed."

Thanks Kai, good suggestion for reordering bundle and target.
