Here are some examples I found on Sindice of using dct:isVersionOf in
the style of prov:specializationOf:


<http://www.myexperiment.org/workflows/154> .


<http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/HAO_000000> .

I would argue none of these are prov:wasRevisionOf

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/developer/formats/rdf says:

A rdfs:isDefinedBy link points from the item of legislation to the
latest version of the legislation. The latest version has a
dct:hasVersion pointer to the particular versioned (and dated)
document, which reciprocates with a dct:isVersionOf property.

  <dct:isVersionOf rdf:resource="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1985/67" />

So here it is used in a FRBR way to do hierarchical prov:specializationOf.

>From this I would still keep my blocking issue, make
prov:wasRevisionOf a subproperty of dct:isVersionOf.  You could argue
that dct:isVersionOf should be a subproperty of prov:specializationOf;
but I would not go there as that would only apply to cases like the
above where dct:isVersionOf has been used "proper".
