ProM Lite is a release for end users (see the Release Notes for details). ProM Lite only contains the most typical packages, it will only show the most typical plug-ins, and it allows to user to select whether to install new packages and/or updates when starting.
In contrast with the regular releases, updates to the packages of the ProM Lite release are possible (as are new packages, if need be). As a result, ProM Lite should not be used to refer to in any publication. ProM Lite is a moving target, and any update may invalidate scientific results obtained using it. If you need ot refer to ProM from any publication, refer to the latest regular release (in this case, ProM 6.5.1a).
