ISSUE-358: Avoid using the term "Web resource" in PAQ

web resource

Avoid using the term "Web resource" in PAQ

Accessing and Querying Provenance
Raised by:
Olaf Hartig
Opened on:
The definition of 'resource' in Sec.1.1 starts by: "also referred to as web resource"

I propose to avoid using the term "Web resource" - in this definition _and_ in all other parts of the document. WEBARCH doesn't introduce this term. Some people understand Web resources as resources for which a representation is accessible on the Web (e.g. [1]). I guess we want to be more inclusive.

Hence, to avoid confusion I propose to replace (nearly) any occurrence of "Web resource" by "resource" in our document. The only exception is the occurrence in the first sentence of Sec.5.1; here I propose to replace "Web resource" by "resource on the Web".
