You might find the W3C central glossary useful. [1] 

Although I'm pointing you to a resource, I didn't find it particularly
helpful in locating a definition for 'content author' or 'content provider'.
I received nothing for content author and content provider gave me a laugh -
"A server that originates content in response to a request."

If anyone can point me to such a resource that isn't specific to a
particular initiative or working group, I'd be very grateful.

I think the W3C needs a wikipedia type glossary to create a universal
database of definitions. I see a lot valuable time being used (sometimes
wasted) on debating definitions.

Hope this helps
