First, it is important to distinguish between:
1) What is "raw data" in a BONSAI context, namely the data as
they are received from elsewhere. These data may be either direct
measurements (very rarely) or previously more or less processed
(in the case of Exiobase definitively more so), with or without
explicit previous provenance. For these data, it is obviously
sufficient to report the direct source, as it is received
(example: Exiobase version NNh, downloaded from URL at Time) which
is then applicable to all datapoints within that dataset.
2) Data that are corrected or otherwise manipulated after
receipt, in which case it is relevant to add the nature of the
correction or calculation, and a timestamp for the changed dataset
(but not for the parts unchanged). In this way, one can always
trace the origin of any datum to the form it originally was
provided to BONSAI.
As ambitions and resources increase, someone may later want to add further upstream provenance to the data in BONSAI, which is of course always possible and desirable.
