The ISO definition (result of a process) works for me.  (Except if it was that easy, why not just use "result of a process" everywhere we write "product"?)

The parentheticals would IMHO be better addressed as notes.

Is obvious if we (1) provide a glossary and definition and (2) are careful to always capitalize it in the document so that it stands out as a defined term.

or

Both of the above could just be a note to the UIC definition which uses the word product (assuming we go with something like the ISO definition of "product" or the one you propose below).

I am still a little concerned (but only a little now) that we may need two definitions of UIC (one that uses the term "product", and one that does not).  Peter has been consistently using "set of user interface elements and the presented information, within a product, that can be accessed using only navigation commands" so probably this is resolved.  Adding the "within a product" qualifier to the earlier (simpler, more straightforward) usages of UIC does not seem to break anything as far as I can tell.

This also works for me.
