It is a common practice to automatically generate a glossary from a collection of glossary entries. Currently, the glossary element requires at least one child element (qandadiv or qandaentry), which forces the author to create a dummy entry and mark the glossary with role="auto" to generate it.
If the glossary content model was permitted to be empty, the stylesheet could recognize that state and generate the glossary. This is how the index element currently works.
