<<Wouldn't that be a non-issue *if* you included a clear definition of the
term on the first page of the discussion, before the narratives?>>

That only works if the manual is read from cover to cover. If it's used as a
reference or is task based, the user may never read the "first" occurence of the
term. Or in other words, the first time the user encounters the term may not be
the first time the term appears in the manual.
