It's more than just VoID, every community around the sem web has been 
doing that hand waving.

At the core, it's really very simply, things change over time, and as 
humans we like to refer to something that changes over time, or know 
where something has came from, or know where something is to be put, or 
know more about something, for all those reasons the simplest thing to 
do is to give a name for that thing, and virtually every use case breaks 
down to a named-g-box when you look at it.
