The agenda for today says:

> g-snap: "RDF graph"

I can live with this, but I'd be much happier if we also came up with a
retronymic clarifying expansion, like "(abstract) RDF Graph", or
"(mathematical) RDF Graph" to use when we needed to be sure to exclude
all the loose usages.

> g-box: "RDF graph resource"?

-1 on "resource" -- in RDF, everything is a resource, certainly
including g-snaps.

There's nothing I really like here, but I could live with "graph
container" or "triplestore".

> g-text: <no name>? "RDF graph serialization/representation"?

I'm happy with "RDF graph serialization".    -1 on "representation",
since the representation relationship is so vague and used in so many
other ways in RDF.
