Yes, and a suggested solution to this eternal conflation issue: just use 
every possible ounce of energy to drop the word "graph" [1][2].

We have documents, content (representation of statements that conform to 
the rules of a specific language), document locations (addresses), and 
entity names. Put differently, we have the following webs:

1. Documents
2. Entity Description Documents
3. Entity Description Documents that include human and machine 
comprehensible relation semantics.

[2] http://bit.ly/1jlHsq9 -- Semantically enhanced Linked Data (no 
mention of "Graph").


Happy New Year!
