Hi Simon,
The author of 503 explicitly mentions a relation "wasAdoptedBy" that is 
missing from the spec.
We argue that it is not missing.
I don't understand what you are suggesting.

I assume the answer is "yes", and that the confusion of the reviewer comes from the fact (previously discussed in telecon) that "delegation" is not a perfect word to express what we mean, as it has the connotation of authority, which entities can have but activities don't obviously have.
