I would have thought that a "graveyard" would be an area next to a church, 
used for burial, and would typically be quite a small area.

A "cemetery" would be a larger area, not usually associated with one 
particular church.

As far as OSM goes, why one should be a node, and another an area I don't 
know.  I also don't know if we really need to differentiate between the two.
