[oslc-core] Proposal: oslc:Query should become oslc:ResponseInfo

The original intention for oslc:Query was that it should represent the 
results of a query. However, we don't use it for that purpose. We now use 
rdf:RDF for multiple subjects or a node element for the resource type as 
the document roots in RDF/XML.

We do use oslc:Query to convey paging information via the oslc:nextPage 
property. However, we might need to page any resource, not just the result 
of a query.

Therefore, this resource should become a blank node of type, e.g. 
oslc:ResponseInfo, because it really tells about about an HTTP response. 
We can then use it in any response to indicate paging and potentially 
other properties that are about the response.
