Proposed changes:
1. rename as 'projection' to help disambiguate from GO: process

2. add two children:

'bony projection'
def: Projection that is composed of bone tissue
is_a projection
has_part bone tissue
syn: bony process

'cartilaginous projection'
def: Projection that is composed of cartilage tissue
is_a projection
has_part cartilage tissue
syn: cartilaginous process
