[DAS2] TYPE[@source] -> TYPE[@method]

I agree that multiple uses of "source" makes it confusing, and that for
types "method" is a reasonable alternative.  On a related note, do we
really need both "title" and "source/method" attributes for types?  Both
are optional and supposed to be short human-readable strings describing
the type.  For a longer description we also have the optional
"description" element.
