Re: [owl changed] ISSUE-83: Express inverse relationships in Provenance Model as well as ontology

This ISSUE has moved forward a few steps.

Stian has added prov:inverse annotations to the ontology, and 
the appendix and table are available at:

http://aquarius.tw.rpi.edu/prov-wg/prov-o#names-of-inverse-properties

Today, the prov-o team agreed to continue on our path of including these inverse names in an appendix and defining the inverses in a separate file.

Next steps:

* prov-o team (and prov-wg) to review the inverse names at http://aquarius.tw.rpi.edu/prov-wg/prov-o#names-of-inverse-properties
* Tim to write appropriate narrative for justifying our decisions to define the inverse names separately.

Regards,
Tim
