Either sorting each product related glossary in different files, or in
different <glossdiv>. Another option is to use attributes like "OS" to
differentiate the terms and then just use some of them at compilation

The glossdiv and attribute options will require to hack the stylesheets

from TDG: "SortAs specifies the string by which the element's content is
to be sorted. If unspecified, the proper content is used."

I don't think this is used in stylesheets?

I would personnaly use other entries like that:

<glosssee otherterm="sgml"/>
