Separate Participants from Business Owners/Experts in Glossary (NOT DUPLICATE)

Currently Participants, Business Owners and Experts are all grouped together in the Glossary. Recently added feature allows us to "Warn users that enter non-preferred values", but it sets it for all three types. Participants are usually defined as Roles, which should be preferred values, while the other types are Named Individuals and won't be set as preferred. There no way to warn for preferred values for the first and not the other two types. The resulting warning message is extremely annoying to the Editor.

NOTE: This is NOT A DUPLICATE of 115088! That was requesting that the Glossary EXPORT clearly identify the different types of values. THIS RFE is requesting that the PARTICIPANTS be separated from the BUSINESS OWNERS/EXPERTS WITHIN the Glossary so that "Warn users..." can be set differently for these very different value types.
