Hi Tony, 

Let me extend your proposal. I propose to change P15 into what you propose.

I think we should:

redefine range of: 
P15 Activity - took into account (was taken into account by): Persistent Item
I take "took into account" as synonym to "influenced by", as the Actor of the
activity "must let it influence her/him".

redefine range of:
P17 Activity - was motivated by (motivated): Stuff ,
   declare P16,P17 as subproperty of P15.

This complements the existing links: 
P19 Activity - was intended use of (was made for) Man-Made Stuff
P16 Activity - used specific object (was used for) Stuff (issue 96)

I propose to either add:
Pxx Activity - was influenced by (influenced): E7 Activity

and declare
P18 Activity - was motivation of (motivated) : E7 Activity subproperty of Pxx

Or to generalize P18 into "was influenced by".

The link P20 corresponds to P19:  
P20 Activity - had specific purpose (was purpose of) : E7 Activity
(intention, future)

Do we need an equivalent to P16 ?:
Pyy  Activity - continued (was continued by) : E7 Activity 

To my understanding, this is all that could be said about
influence between activity and stuff, and between activities.
It seems to me complete and symmetric.

Please comment
