Luc, Paolo,

As we worked on the final version of the primer, I went over the PROV-DM document one more time in detail.  It reads very well, has very good examples and the tables and figures make it easy to follow.  My only suggestion to improve it at this point is to fix a typo: "prov:SoftareAgent".

I noticed that the PROV-DM document mostly follows the convention that we agreed to in using camel case with the first letter as lower case.  However, the document capitalizes the names of relations in some places: figures 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, and tables 2, 4, 5.  

Also, types are always shown in lower case, except that Table 9 has all the types capitalized, as does the introduction of agent-related concepts in the description of Component 3.  

This is a minor point about following conventions uniformly, not a big problem but something I wanted to bring to your attention.
