Hi Evert,

Thank you for working on the glossary reference! Using your data, I tried a little experiment today to reformat your
data and see if I could tease out some additional information (notably, relevant scheme):

Here’s how it works:

 * There’s a section for each one of our home-grown terms.
 * Within that section there’s a table of related terms. 
 * For each related term I try to provide:
     * A definition
     * A source for that definition
     * How it relates to our term (namely: is it a synonym? specialization? One can imagine other relations as well like “generalization”).
     * The payment scheme in which one would use this term (e.g., credit, debit, digital currency). The data here are not perfect; I don’t
       know how to characterize a “user account” for something like PayPal. This field could also include additional notes where useful.

What do you think of this sort of structure for the glossary reference? Are there other data for each term that you think would help the reader (e.g., “Examples” or “See also”)?

I expect there are respec features to do much of what I did by hand for illustration, such as management of references and an index.
