Im not sure I follow the question. Do you mean we don't want to create a 'Galaxy' term
because there are various kinds of Galaxy, and thats too broad? I'd disagree with that.
I do think that the focus should be solely on astronomical objects for the time being (e.g. no worrying
about 'data provider', 'publisher', 'equation', 'workflow', etc, etc. and the gazillion other
terms one might associate with doing astronomy work online).
