Hi Paul, thanks for your review and suggestions.

I've responded inline below

Some brief comments:
> - The abstract needs to be expanded. Please say what the document is
> about. Suggestion: "This document describes extensions to PROV to
> facilitate the modelling of provenance for dictionary data structures"
> Incorporated. Does it need to contain more information than this?

> - I don't understand this sentence: "The specification of such specialized
> structures in terms of key-value pairs is out of the scope of this
> document.", you just got through talking about maps… it seems out of place
> or not complete

> "This document provides a mechanism to assert the provenance for these

> key-value pairs, modified through insertions and deletions. Any more
> specialized structures can be modeled to some extent in terms of these

Is this acceptable to you?

due to time constraints.
