Heavens to Betsy... they'll let anyone on this list! :-) Who was it... Mark Twain or Groucho Marx... "I wouldn't join a club that would let me be a member?"
(1) In your modeling travels, how often when you arrive at a new assignment, does the client hand you a glossary/dictionary/list of terms/lexicon to be used in your models?
(2) When you finish an assignment, how often does the client DEMAND/EXPECT/REQUIRE that you produce a glossary/dictionary/list of terms & definitions?
Or maybe I should just ask... has it ever happened?
