Though I think this proposal is a good idea in general, I don't follow why
anyone would need to include dictionaries for this in the present scheme of
things: term and gloss are in teicore2 So was the idea in P5 to move term
and gloss out of the slimmed-down core and into dictionaries? I wouldn't
think that was sensible in the first place.
But I'm ignorant about the current state of the developments aimed at
making P5 seriously usable for term-banks (as distinct from the rather
limited possibilities of the P4 Ch 12 "Print dictionaries") Is the
(re?)location of "term" (e.g. its putative migration away from the core)
somehow tied in with these developments? In which case there might be
larger implications here that the terminologists could comment on.
