I agree that we shouldn't give the impression that the enriched graph
is what is being queried. This might be the case in many systems, but
to satisfy the ent. reg. you could also just partly materialise and do
some query rewriting etc., so the query is really a query for the
initial graph and materialisation is just a convenient implementation
technique.

How about calling the enriched graph MaterializedInferencesGraph? It
is a bit longer and maybe not any better, but that's all the comes to
my mind at the moment.
