Can you explain the normativity implications? If I'm on track, the
QA Glossary is not a normative document, but the various QA Guidelines
documents will be. Thus, any attempt to assess how well a testable
item conforms to those guidelines will need normative definitions.

If a QA document had a Definitions section, and there was a term whose
entry said just "see QA Glossary", would that promote the term from
Informative to Normative for purposes of that document?
