Subject: Using glossary terms by reference

A client wants to be able to use terms defined in a glossary by 
reference where they are mentioned.

In reviewing the glossary support markup I don't see any direct solution 
other than using <term> within <glossterm> and then doing conrefs to the 
terms where you want to reflect the term in content.

Obviously this will work but is there a better way?

It would be nice if we could, for example, say that conref from term may 
point to other term instances or to glossterm. [For 2.0 I may propose a 
generic mechanism for defining the reference type constraints for conref 
on a per element-type basis, so that you could formally say that conref 
from term can point to term or glossterm (or specializations thereof).]
