Editors' proposal for types of containers

 Last meeting [1] we had a discussion and some proposals for names of the
various types of containers [2].

Proposed new names for these types of LDPCs:

LDP Basic Container (LDP-BC) => no change

LDP Direct Container (LDP-DC) => no change

LDP Indirect Container (LDP-IC) => LDP Container (LDPC), combine with LDPC

Additionally (using the new terminology), a proposal to express the class
hierarchy would be: (removing LDP prefixes, insert your own rdfs:subClassOf
if it helps)

   +- NR
   +- RS
       +- Container
           +- DC
              +- BC

Since a LDP-DC is just a refinement of LDPC, limiting the inserted content
relationship ...and therefore membership is more direct

Since a LDP-BC is just a refinement of LDP-DC, limiting the member resource
and membership triples ...and therefore the capabilities are fairly basic
compared to others.  Called it constant or fixed seemed to imply other
limitations that aren't true.

I can also draw (if needed) a simple Venn diagram that shows this
progression of capabilities and constraints.
