No, considering it is only a first working draft I agree they should
not all be blocking.

However the reason I would be a bit stricter with this than with WD5
is that by now PROV-O and friends are very stable, and growing in
popularity and usage ; and thus something like PROV Dictionary is more
likely to be picked up at this point - therefore it's good to get some
of the fundamentals right early, like namespaces.

OK, I've gone through, and now I consider only these as blocking:

9, 11, 15, 16, 17, 20, 34, 39, 41

They should generally be quick-fix or search/replace.

For PROV-O and PROV-XML only download link would be needed - forget
about the explanation for now.  Download links is specially important
for those two as that's how it can be used/tested.
