how about this?

The author designates the term in the editor using some special markup. 
In XHTML, this could be for instance

   <span class="glossaryTerm">Foo</span>

An XSLT replaces the <span> with a link:

   <a href="lenya-document:?glossaryTerm=Foo">Foo</a>

Another XSLT checks for the glossaryTerm request parameter and includes 
the glossary document accordingly (in the example the node name is the 
same as the term, you'd have to find a convention for spaces and other 
special characters):

   <xsl:if test="$glossaryTerm != ''">
     <div class="glossaryColumn">
       <ci:include src="site:/{$lang}/glossary/$glossaryTerm"/>
