Request: Add "syngamy" as a synonym of the existing GO biological process term fertilization (GO:0009566)

Syngamy is defined as "The process of union of two gametes to form a zygote. It involves both plasmogamy and karyogamy. Also known as fertilization"

This is commonly used in the scientific literature.
