I think this is an excellent idea. We should add a section on
terminology, or at least some pointers to relevant RFCs where a
description might already have been written. A small section at the front
of the document defining certain terms would definitely not hurt, though.
(Since this information will likely be common to all GRIP documents,
perhaps a separate draft on terminology is appropriate.)
