[Fwd: inconsistent use of terminology in SPARQL query language document]

Checking the current editors' draft, the only uses of "bnode" are:

1/ The grammar BNODE_LABEL (to refer to the forms like "_:a"); the grammar 
rule for blank nodes is "BlankNode" and the string "bnode" is not used 
elsewhere in the document.

I have changed it to BLANK_NODE_LABEL.

2/ In some <!-- --> comments including the casting table.

3/ CVS log

It was in the LC document in 11.1 as "* r:bNode (blank node)" but that has gone.

The terms "bnode" and "blank node" are both used in the document.  One should
be defined as a shorthand of the other or, preferable, only one should be used.
