What about 'web sheet' ? A kind of 'web page' that looks more like a 
spreadsheet or graph paper. Basically, said sheet is confined to 4 cells 
and infinite rows -- subject to 'data space' capacity. If you want to 
merge these sheets, this about the holes used for stacking them in a 
*context specific* ring binder, in a sense, this is what this nebulous 
4th column is (sorta) about.

Hope this helps.
