My original suggestion for g-box was "RDF Resource". I still think this most neatly captures the intention: a REST resource (a proddable Web thingie which emits representations of its state when prodded) whose representations are (parsable into) RDF graphs. If this is too gnomic, then "RDF Graph Resource" would do. It needs to have "RDF" in it somewhere. 

BTW, I have always thought of a g-box as something which emits graphs when prodded, rather than being restricted to a simple container. So +1 to this generalization, if it is a generalization.
