Kerry: What is a Phenomenontime in this context? As distinct from a ResultTime? Why do we need it?

- Maxime: AFAIK, resultTime can be later than phenomenonTime. As an example in the spec, maybe we could use the example of an astronomical telescope that outputs today some phenomenon that occurred many years ago?

Currently proposed options

  1. keep sosa:phenomenonTime, delete sosa:resultTime and promote the use of prov:generatedAtTime
  2. keep sosa:phenomenonTime, keep sosa:resultTime and align sosa:resultTime to prov:generatedAtTime
