Proposed Definitions for the Concept 'Provenance container'
Definition from DC Metadata Task Group
A starting point for provenance container can be Description Set: A set of one or more Descriptions, each of which describes a single resource. The DC Task group also proposes to distinguish between the Description Set (which only holds provenance statements about a resource) and the different annotations that can be made about the Description Set (its metadata provenance, grouped in an Annotation Set), but I'm not sure if this should be part of this working group.
