The STS working group has proposed adding a term-type attribute to the term element so that standards can mark terms as ?preferred?, ?non-preferred?, or ?admitted?. As this attribute may have use in other areas for JATS or BITS (e.g. "abbreviation" in term-type would allow a local indication that a term is an abbreviation), it seems a reasonable addition to JATS

We will at several attributes to <term>: @term-type, @term-status, @vocab, @vocab-identifier, @vocab-term, & @vocab-term-identifier. These will all identification not only of preferred/non-preferred/admitted terms but also of of controlled vocabularies with which the terms may be associated.
