> Starting an activity does not always take place instantaneously. Like generation and usage, it might be advantageous to add support for "activity wasPartOf activity" so that one can model a startup process that takes time and may reference other entities or activities. This would allow users to consider starting an activity as a separate activity, which has a defined start and end time and which could be ended (perhaps prematurely) by some triggering event.
