Regulators

The goal is to clean up existing enzyme/catalytic activity regulator, activator and inhibitor terms in MF: we should only keep those that represent a direct molecular activity that regulates the activity of another gene product.

Examples that we would allow include classical competitive inhibition, and probably noncompetitive and uncompetitive inhibition as well (must confirm).

We don't want to create regulator terms in cases where there is no direct evidence about what something does, but experiments show it has an effect on the activity of something else.

Function and process documentation should be updated accordingly.
