Stephen,

Thanks for the suggestions for QuotationInvolvement and WasQuotedBy.

I've taken it to the prov-o team to see what they think.

I donít have any better suggestion for Quotation in isolation, I think it would need a change of naming convention for involvements, e.g. have something like QuotationInvolvement (but perhaps it was like that previously?).  Another alternative is to use the convention of naming the involvements similarly to the direct properties, e.g. WasQuotedBy.  Something like that was used in OPMO, and at least makes the correspondences obvious.
