Subject: [cti] Boilerplate change suggestion



Coming new to the spec, I found the following boilerplate in STIX difficult to wrap my mind around:

"The reverse relationships (relationships "to" the Infrastructure object) are included as a convenience. For their definitions, please see the objects for which they represent a "from" relationship."

In particular, the clause "for which they represent a 'from' relationship" took several moments to grok and I don't believe that I am alone based on some discussions.

I would like to propose the following alternative text:

Reverse relationships indicate relationships targeting this object by other objects. They are included here for convenience. For their definitions, please see the "Source" object.
