1. This glossary contains Master-Definitions, but the definitions themselves may contain explanations of other terms (for example, in the Related Concepts sections), which are less formal, and less Authoritative than the Master-Definition for that Concept.
2. A Master-Definition should contain full information about the source, Authority, Version and Status, where relevant.
