Default Need for term definitions in FAQ's?

I have noticed lots of debate going on in here over terms and their definitions.

I also notice we have a lot of visitors who are non-members who are probably coming here to learn what this whole thing is all about. If they happen not to stumble on the threads where the terms are argued/defined, they may go away without as much of an education as they could if they could look up a word they don't understand and keep in mind the definition as they read it being used.

I think this would also be helpful for new members to read so that we don't have to waste threads correcting one another.

This forum is one of the most legitimate sources of information on polyamory as far as I know- and I think it would be responsible to put terms and definitions in an easily accessible place for all to refer to.

Words that come to mind are:
Polyamory
Polyandry
Polyfidelity
Vee
Triad
Quad
Primary/Secondary
Unicorn
Swinging
Polygamy
Asexual
Compersion

I'm sure you can think of more. What do you think, folks?
