This is not clear. TM is one thing, glossary and dict are a different
thing. Can you give us more details?

I don't understand that screenshot: where is the context exactly?

better than a kick in the teeth :) For roadmap I usually think of a high
level description of a list of new features to add, the vision for the
project/product in the next months.
