Hi Paul, looks good.

Some off-the-cuff notes:

Section 1 diagram looks good, but it seems a little odd to me that PROV-N is in 
there with PROV-DFM and constraints rather than shown beside the 
serializations.  I understand that PROV-N is used by PROV-DM, but at this 
50,000-foot level I think it might more usefully be shown as "justy another" 

Technically, PROV-O isn't itself a serialization, but a vocabulary that can be 
serialized as RDF.  But maybe it's best to leave that as is, or things get 

The statement "At its core is a conceptual data model, which defines a common 
vocabulary used to describe provenance" seems to be slightly at odds with the 
classification of PROV-0DM as being for "advanced" users.
