Agreed.

What about inline (span or p)

<span class="definition">A software module called an <dfn 
id="xml-processor">XML processor</dfn> is used to read XML documents 
and provide access to their content and structure. It is assumed that 
an XML processor is doing its work on behalf of another module, called 
the application.</span>


and at the end of the document:

<dl class="glossary">
…
	<dt id="xml-processor-def">XML processor</dt>
	<dd>A software module called an XML processor is used to read XML 
documents and provide access to their content and structure. It is 
assumed that an XML processor is doing its work on behalf of another 
module, called the application.</dd>
…
</dl>
