Hi all,
Here's some text for a note on the use of disambiguation in relation to 
terminology

"Note: The use case for disambiguation is distinct from that for the 
Terminology data category. Disambiguation may directly  inform human and 
automated translation activities in settings where no explicit 
terminology management process is in place. The two data categories may 
also be complementary, e.g. when automatically generated disambiguation 
annotation provides input to a manual terminology management process 
that results in Terminology annotations."

Jorge, you may want to add something further about other uses of 
disambiguation, though this may be covered with the existing text on the 
purpose of disambiguation:
"Informing content management systems and translation services about the 
intended conceptual type of a textual entity in order to enable 
processing based on this specific type for source and target languages, 
for example, when dealing with personal names, product names, or 
geographic names, chemical compounds, protein names, and so forth."

Regards,
Dave
