         When publishing provenance information, a corresponding <a class="internalDFN">provenance-URI</a> or <a class="internalDFN">service-URI</a> should be discoverable using one or more of the mechanisms described in <a href="#locating-provenance-information" class="sectionRef"></a>.
+      <p>
+        Provenance may be presented as a <a href="/TR/prov-dm/#component4" class="externalRef">bundle</a>, which <cite>is a named set of provenance descriptions, and is itself an entity, so allowing provenance of provenance to be expressed</cite> [[PROV-DM]].  There is no requirement that a bundle identifier can be dereferenced to access the corresponding provenance, but where practical it is RECOMMENDED that matters be arranged so this is possible.  One possible realization of a bundle is that it is published as part of an RDF Dataset [[RDF-CONCEPTS11]] or similar composite structure. To access such a bundle would require accessing the RDF Dataset and then extracting the identified component; this in turn would require knowing a URI or some other way to retrieve the dataset.  This specification does not describe a specific mechanism for this; we anticipate that the W3C Linked Data Platform group (<a href="" class="externalRef"></a>) may address this topic in due course.
