Hi Cynthia, Aaron,

Just a brief note as a reminder for future work.

Dataset provenance (see email below)  is one of the 'facets'  we would need
to include in our new RDA metadata system. Dataset provenance is mainly for
understanding data and less for data discovery.

For this round we can not 'finish' it but we can assign a placeholder for
it while constructing the new dataset RDA-compliant description system.
