>         bf:providerPlace [ a bf:Place ; bf:label "London" ]

Is that London England or London Ontario?  Since RDA now allows
provision of jurisdiction if lacking, could we please not carry the
AACR2 practice of truncated places of publication, manufacture, or
distribution into Bibframe?  (At least we no longer omit place for
producer.)

bf:Place should be defined as including jurisdiction.

Why "providerPlace" rather than Producer, Publisher, Distributor, or
Manufacturer?  It would help to have more consistent terminology
amongst our standards.  Might not some consider "Provider" to mean the
book jobber?  English terms are often ambiguous.
