PROV-ISSUE-352 (rename-WasQuotedFrom): A better name for wasQuotedFrom [prov-dm]

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/352

Raised by: Daniel Garijo
On product: prov-dm

Currently, the DM says:
A quotation record, written wasQuotedFrom(e2,e1,ag2,ag1,attrs) in PROV-ASN, contains:
    quote: an identifier e2, identifying an entity record that represents the quote;
    quoted: an identifier e1, identifying an entity record representing what is being quoted; 
...

However, if we say that e2 wasQuotedFrom e1 it may look like entity e1 is the one quoting e2 (since we are saying that e2 was quoted).

I think it would be more clear if we rename the property with e2 wasQuoteOf e1, or e2 hadQuoteFrom e1. 

Thoughts?
Thanks,
Daniel
