thanks for the detailed definition... however  it is kind of "New Speak" 
 to those of us who have lived in the urban environment
surrounded by graffiti -  which would include "graffiti art" and what 
you call (or "they" call) tagging.

Noting, too, that given Frank's black and white photo either definition 
could apply :)
