What about any of the following:

1. RDF data spaces
2. RDF data source names.


The terminology alignment between RDF + SPARQL and the broader realm of 
DBMS technology (esp. because of SPARQL) is ultimately a win-win. In the 
RDBMS realm (as you and Steve know) we have:

RDBMS - Relational Tables (while RDF stores are basically Relational 
Property Graphs)
Tables -- Named Relations comprised of n-tuples
Data Source Names (DSNs) -- for ODBC,  JDBC etc. access scoped to 
Tables/Views re. data access by reference pattern
Views -- for all intents an purposes this aligns well with 
backward-chained inference
Triggers -- for all intents an purposes this aligns well with 
forward-chained inference .
