This may not be the response you are looking for, but generally I feel
that the ISO style of definitions is a problem more than a solution.
Definitions out of context are basically a pain. The closer you can
put these definitions to where the user is likely to actually want
them, the better it will be.

So I would suggest adding them to the text at the point of first use.
