Chris Jerdonek added the comment:

Here is a proposed patch just to get the ball rolling on this.

Note that I'm proposing that we let ourselves use the word "standard" in place of "positional-or-keyword" when talking about parameters.  This is partly inspired by PEP 362, which says, "Parameter.POSITIONAL_OR_KEYWORD ... this is the standard binding behaviour for functions implemented in Python."

This patch only takes an initial crack at the glossary entries.  Once these are fleshed out, we can add additional :term: links and index directives.
