I think that the idea of producing a DODS glossary is very good for both
DODS and THREDDS communities.
For THREDDS community, I would suggest also to try to confront -and if
possible to map- such glossary with other lexicons utilised by other
Information Communities that THREDDS should work with (i.e. Digital
Library, GIS, etc.).
It may seem a pointless task, but it turns out to be valuable when
THREDDS people will have to explain DODS dataset to GIS or Digital
Library Communities members.
