We have simplified it, so you can use more generic properties within the ProvisionActivity class (or whichever subclass)
They have no specified domain, so you can use them in any other place in the ontology as well.
Hope that helps!

Subject: [BIBFRAME] provisionActivity

Dear Colleagues,

I'm a young librarian of a Hungarian university library, and my MA-degree thesis is about the BIBFRAME. I have a question about the publishing data. In the 1.0 version it looked like this:

bf:providerStatement "London : Bloomsbury, 2003." ;
            bf:publication [ a bf:Provider ;
                    bf:providerDate "2003" ;
                    bf:providerName [ a bf:Organization ;
                            bf:label "Bloomsbury" ] ;
                    bf:providerPlace [ a bf:Place ;
                            bf:label "London " ] ] ;

In the example above, every data element has its own property. But now, in the 2.0 there's only one class (ProvisionActivity, and, all right, its subclasses too) and one property (provisionActivity) to express at least three different data elements. Do I understand it right? Even the MARC separates the publication statement into three...
