Yes, and I'm putting this resolution forward to feed the fresh 
discussion, and as a proposal to resolve the issue:

PROPOSAL1: the notion informally known as "g-box" will be called "graph 
container".

Alternative:

PROPOSAL2: the notion informally known as "g-box" will be called "RDF 
container".

Alternative (cf. Kingsley's email on the topic):

PROPOSAL3: the notion informally known as "g-box" will be called "RDF 
document".

Alternative (cf. Kingsley's other email on the topic):

PROPOSAL3: the notion informally known as "g-box" will be called "RDF 
source".

Personal vote:
-1 for RDF document. Mostly shrug on any of the remaining 3 options but 
a slight preference for one of the first 2 choices.
