PROV-ISSUE-501: Data Model Section 2.1.1, example [prov-dm]


Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: prov-dm



The example of driving a car from Boston to Cambridge is not intuitive to most readers and does not highlight the strengths of the PROV model. The example focuses on the relocation of a physical object, which most people would consider a single entity (not two or more). The examples later in the spec use document editing, which is a straightforward example that will be very intuitive to readers. I suggest replacing the car example with a document example, which would also be more consistent with the rest of the spec.

Note: This example should also be contained within an "example" box rather than as part of the text.
