We have a very loose definition of “dataset”:


I don't think it really helps us here. I guess that any collection of one or more g-snaps and/or g-boxes can be a void:Dataset.

One reason why I want to see this group nail down the g-box/g-snap/g-text terminology in a REC is that it would provide a *much* more solid foundation for things like VoID, where we currently have to hand-wave a lot for lack of citable standard terminology.
