small comments:

- the header 'PROV family of documents' appears twice
- in the list of documents, the first item should say (this document) instead having a circular reference
- In section 1: 'This instantiated by various serializations' -> 'This is instantiated by various serializations'
- In section 1: 'To help developers and user create valid provenance' -> 'To help developers and users to create valid provenance'
- Section 1: refers to the various blocks in the figure, but it does not say anything about 'PROV-LINKS'.
- The figure is a matter of taste, of course. But I usually look at these figures as, sort of, stacks; for me the figure suggests that the PROV-DM is based on the PROV-DC document. I would probably try to move these somehow on the left side, and leave the PROV-DM block as the base.
- The remark on Prov-O: "This is intended for the Linked Data and Semantic Web community and is useful for developers wishing to create RDFa mark-up." Did you mean 'RDF mark-up'? I do not think that a restriction on RDFa is necessary or useful here...
- I am not sure the term 'Roadmap' is the right one for the header of section 2. 'available documents'? 
- In the final version would it be worth making a reference to implementations/tools? A possibility is to link to 


in case you guys fill this with your tools, that is:-) Alternatively, the implementation report may be used as well.

As for your questions below:

Absolutely. Yes

See my comments above. I do not consider them as blocking.

I think I am late with it, I do this at the airport of San Jose, and it is still early... But I hope it is helpful nevertheless!
