Do you mean as in having a "definitions" section?

That is permitted but not required by JTC 1.

Personally I dislike such sections as it forces a repetition of 
information that is defined elsewhere.

That is I agree that terms should be defined but those definitions 
should occur in context and not in a list divorced from that context.

Hope you are having a great day!
