Subject: RE: [dita] use of <term>

I think we should delete that sentence. 
Not only isn't it relevant to the current standard, but it's talking about application behavior that should be driven by a stylesheet, not something that should be in the DITA spec.  (But you knew I was going to say that.)

Subject: [dita] use of <term>

I have just checked the langref of the element <term> in version 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2. All langref descriptions are identically with the following sentance:
The <term> element identifies words that represent extended definitions or explanations. In future development of DITA, for example, terms might provide associative linking to matching glossary entries.
As "future development of DITA" is mentioned within 3 DITA releases we may have either to change this text or to provide a solution. Or do we already have solved this, then we may have to update the text.
Best regards
