Description

This is related to #3791: Implement operation to move a Description to another Taxon and will be an analogous implementation to #3472 (update name in source data when changing an accepted taxon into a synonym)

See there for details.

Problem: if the nameInSource field is empty before, can we expect that all sources use the accepted taxon name or does it only mean that the information is not available. An automated functionality can only be used if the former is valid. Should the handling be configurable?
The best solution is to always store name used in source information with all sources, then there is no need to update it.

At least we do have freetext information in the new description that this data was moved from another name. So the data is not completely lost (but not shown to the public user).
