Goal: 
From a given data element, find all instances of that element in any dataset
Summary: 
Registered datasets that include many data elements may share these elements with other datasets. An Actor should be able to identify the other datasets that include the shared data elements without having to follow a provenance chain, i.e. the list of datasets should present as a property of the data element, even if this is an ad-doc generation from a Linked Data register (or similar).
Steps: 
Select a dataset from a register
Select an element of interest within that dataset
Take the identifier for that element and use it as a parameter to a provenance query
See results of the provenance query indicating datasets in the register
