Subject: Re: [dita] Integrate glossary reference domain into bookmap?

Rather than putting the terms in a map, it would be nice to have them identified in a consistent location for processing. Glossref in glossarylist would do exactly that.

As an example, each of our common terms are housed in a common directory. Today, we use a map with topicrefs that point to each of the terms. It works, but it is not the most intuitive for authors to create.

Using glossref in a glossarylist makes the reference explicit and intuitive to author and to process.

So why can't we put glossref in glossarylist?

    Iâd think that a common glossary would be contained in a map, so no need for <glossarylist> to contain <glossref> ...
