As nd said, this was my intention. The <phonetic> element is for
glossary usage only. Whenever we feel, we should explain a pronunciation
elsewhere within the documentation, then this term is a good candidate
for the glossary. As well, phonetic elements are not limited to ipa. And
they are not required, just nice to have.

Also ... I think, the glossary is the only document within the manual,
that may differ from its english original. It may be neccessary to
explain some terms for Japanese, German or e.g. Spanish people, which
are clear for English-speaking people.

Yoshiki, thank you for your very good explanation :)
