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.

At this juncture is there agreement about the following:

1. g-box -- an RDF document (purpose: denotes RDF source)
2. g-text -- graph representation syntax
3. g-snap -- graph instance.

So we access RDF documents at an address, transform content, and then 
work with graph instances.
