The glossStatus element identifies the usage status of a preferred or alternate term. If the status isn't specified, the glossterm provides a preferred term and an alternate term provides an allowed term.

If validation is required for status values, use a subject scheme to set up controlled values for the value attribute. Alternatively, processing rules can be used to validate the values.
