Fix cloning operations to not create needless objects #9

As it stands, the amount of cloning in the Core spec would create a number of extra (needless?) objects, as each clone of a Mon would create a new Species instead of simply using the existing one.

When cloning foreign non-Actor objects, only one clone should ever be made for any given id, and it should just be updated/replaced when a new clone needs to be made. The original source object—in its entirety—can be stored in the as:source property defined by ActivityPub.

(The spec should be updated to clarify that local non-Actor objects need not be cloned.)
