This term is probably defined differently for publishing purposes than
I have defined it.

Regardless of what the word means to any individual, I think it is
important to agree on the definition of this term (and others) *for
our purposes* before using it. There is probably already an unspoken
understanding of the definition which is undocumented so maybe we
should document what constitutes a node and what constitutes content.
