I note that this WG has consistently ignored that resolution for more than a year, and kept using the term g-box. This indicates that we did, in fact, not have consensus on the issue.

Since then, we have resolved not to normatively use any of the g-* concepts beside g-snap (RDF Graph). What used to be a fundamental design question is now merely an editorial issue within informative text in a single spec, RDF Concepts. Furthermore, there is now a complete proposal for the section of text that actually uses the term. I think this changes the situation enough to warrant a bit of fresh discussion.

Best,
Richard
