If an accelerating body is identical to gravity, does this means scientists are leaning towards acceleration having to do with a somehow greater exchange of "gravitons?" Else not identical according to quantum theory?

What EiInstein said in his principle of eqivalence is: Gravity cannot be distinguished from acceleration. You assume that gravity is acceleration, and that they are the same thing. And remember, gravitons are only a theory, they havent been detected yet.
