Re: PROV-ISSUE-563 (primer-alternates-figure): Primer Section 3.9 Alternates [Primer]

not sure who raised this, but I believe that in the example of 3.9 the statement

ex:articleV2 prov:alternateOf      ex:articleV1

is redundant, since it follows by Inf. 20 in CONSTR.

This may be noted explicitly but I would keep the statement, as it elicited a relevant comment.

It seems that whoever raised the issue feels, like me, that specializations and alternates should not mix so freely.

> The figure makes clear the ambiguous interpretation of "alternateOf". Both V1 and V2 are different "specializations" of "article", yet they are declared to be alternates. I find this unintuitive.
