Option 1 (baseline)
(this was the agreement the last time this was brought to a decision; things seem to have changed enough in the model since then for the decision to no longer be binding.)
- RDF Graph
- Graph Container
- RDF Graph
- RDF data source
Option 3 (retronym)
- abstract graph, abstract RDF graph
- [something] graph, [something] RDF graph.
... where [something] hasn't quite been determined yet. Options include:
- maintained (but what if it's been abandoned?)
- mutable (but what if it's a frozen snapshot?)
- named (but wont that really confuse people?)
- stored (but what if it's dynamically generated?)
- available (but what if it's access controlled?)
- concrete (awkward word)
The idea here is that when people say "graph" or "RDF graph" these days, they often mean g-box. So we could go with the flow here, let them do that, and just come up with adjectives people can use to distinguish between g-snaps and g-boxes when necessary. What kind of graph is a g-box?
