The word "node" conjured up in my mind the point where two sides of a
polygon intersect so I thought you were referring to something that would
make it easy to create or edit a polygon or its 3D equivalent.

I don't really have any suggestion for the terminology. 

I use the word "element" to describe the parts in one of my ClikScad models.
An element could be a cube, a sphere, a difference, a module etc.  When
ClikScad creates the OpenSCAD code every one of those will be in an OpenSCAD
module as that seemed to me the simplest way for my Python code to do
things.
