Could you explain why do you think this should be in Glossary?  I'm
not saying that I object, but in general, a glossary should mainly
explain the terminology.  Meanwhile, the manual already describes
elsewhere what you wrote here.  So I'm guessing you had something
specific in mind when you suggested this; I wonder what that is.

Btw, you cannot use @ref alone, without something like "see" or "as
described in" before it, since @ref produces a raw reference in the
printed manual, something like "page 1234, [Foo bar]".  Imagine this
after the comma that precedes @ref in your text, and you will see what
I mean.
