PROV-ISSUE-523: Data Model Section 5.3.5   [prov-dm]


Raised by: Luc Moreau
On product: prov-dm



The notion of influence is useful for the PROV model, but it is unclear whether this is intended to represent an extension point for adopters of the spec. How should it be implemented?

If all relations inherit from the abstract Influence relationship, then all relations should inherit the attributes of Influence, including ID and attributes (both optional) and the ID of the influencee and influencer. The latter are not required in many relations, so there seems to be a semantic inconsistency within the model.
