No, I don't think that's appropriate.

Any new terminology specific to the PDD should be defined, but that's it. 
Perl terms not specific to the PDD should be defined elsewhere (either in 
an RFC or PDD). For everything else, there's the bibliograpy.

If you (and this is the generic you here) aren't up to speed on the basics 
of the field (parser design, optimizer design, interpreter design, 
whatever) it's best to get up to speed first.
