They are almost perfect! This level of strictness is very appropriate
for this specialization of prov:Collections.

I would have liked for this to be in as it is quite a nice constraint
- but I can see supporting 'empty' removals is like a mirroring of
allowing 'overwriting inserts' - and so I'm OK with removing this
constraint. If had we kept it, there would also be a stronger case for
explicitly mentioning e1 in derivedByRemovalFrom.
