Looking at PROV-DM again, the range of a PROV-DM Identifier is defined as a 'qualified name', which itself is defined by PROV-DM as

A qualified name ◊ is a name subject to namespace interpretation. It consists of a namespace, denoted by an optional prefix, and a local name.

Your example of prov:id (prov:id="tr:WD-prov-dm-20111215) uses tr: which is not defined in the namespace. Is this just a mistake? It would be good to see an an example linking out beyond the scope of one document.
