Great points and super well put.

One additional space that heavily uses graph nodes/paths is Reaktor, which I was tempted to add a whole diatribe on flow based programming and its uses like in the music industry

An HTTP service composer using this structure sounds amazing

Yes indeed the GUIs on synth/sequencing tools have always impressed the hell out of me. The general paradigm of the modular synthesiser is exactly what I'm describing: a graph of control/signal cables with the nodes being sound processors. Thanks for the term 'flow based programming', I'm going to read up on that!
