Hi Daniel, all

Are there objections to making prov:wasRevisionOf a subProperty of
dct:isVersionOf.

>From my perspective, this is a bit disappointing as it makes querying dct
from prov harder. You couldn't query on prov:wasRevisionOf and get
dct:isVersionOf back.

However, I won't object to this change.

Thanks
Paul
