Yes the reap usecase isn't specific, it requests "an archive that contains the
Kepler workflow, all required inputs (data sources like database tables are
included), and all produced output."

All the things you mention do seem likely. 

If they don't fall in the 'workflow outputs' category, determining what are
'Intermediate Data products' and 'Final results' seems difficult without user

In the past we've discussed the PRA being a kar file. It must provide enough
metadata to be useful in the repository (description, search), to a user that
downloads it, and to a publication. I imagine Kepler should be able to open it
(the wf contained within) as well.

It's been discussed that a PRA could be either contain (all of the described
from) a set of runs, or just one.
