Hi Daniel,

I don't believe there was consensus to change the name of the relation 
as you suggested.
We also have removed agents from this definition. Definition of 
quote/original attributes
are as follows:


quote: an identifier (e2) for the entity that represents the quote (the 
partial copy);
original: an identifier (e1) for the original entity being quoted;

Can we close this issue?
Cheers,
Luc
