And then add a standard Appendix to every CSS spec, Terms Defined Elsewhere.

I don't think people should be forced to go hunting for where terms were
originally defined.  The advantage of the hyperlink is one can jump into a
document set without reading from start to finish in linear order.

That also forces spec editors to be sure (another check) they are using
terms which have formal definitions.
