The terms are (will be) defined in the language part of the spec,
and there is already an entry in the NOTES section that defines
what they mean for the moment, since the language part does not
yet exist.  Will that not suffice?

(I don't mind judicious redundancy in the spec, but my
judgement was that this is an occasion for that.  I'm not wedded
to that opinion.)

This looks like unfinished cleanup.  It should definitely be
a const property.
