SC 3.1.3: Glossary without Links Should Fail?

Test case sc3.1.3_l3_004 in the second version of the BenToWeb test 
suite [1] contains text with jargon and the jargon is explained in a 
glossary below the text. However, there are no links between the 
occurrences of jargon in the text and the corresponding glossary 
entries below the text. User testing did not convincingly show that 
this is sufficient for users of a screenreader or magnification 
software. So technique G62 (for Situation A) may need to specify 
stricter requirements on how the glossary can be located.
