Node != content. Or if we use the name 'content' for 'node', we could 
actually replace all apperances of 'node' with 'content'... I assumed we 
use the 'content' word on the interface to not scare people, but 
acknowledging that a 'content' is less then a 'node'. It all comes down 
to the definition of course, so both of these words can mean the same. 
But is a 'user profile' (which is going to be buildable with CCK) a 
'content'??? Is a product a 'content'? I would not use this word for it. 
But then I am not a native English speaker, so I might have a different 
view on it...
