UCD for query

   Marco is right, there is no proper term to describe an ADQL query
string with the current UCD vocabulary. The current meta.software
can't work, because its syntax flag 'S' says it can only be used to
qualify another UCD word.
   We could take the opportunity of the undergoing revision of the
ucd list to include a new word in the "meta" branch, e.g. "meta.query"
Its definition could be "Expression of a request performed to retrieve
data, for example a SQL or ADQL query".
   I'd rather not have too much details, trying to avoid proliferation of
terms like meta.query.SQL.mySQL...
