The one that seems relevant in my context, and sways me, is: "An exact
statement or description of the nature, scope, or meaning of something".

So under the heading of "New Employees" for our Cashier's Office, the
"scope" would be the name or names of those employees.

Oh, and I'm *sure* that back in the early days of the W3C (or before
that?), when some programmer-type was trying to decide what to call
this particular mark-up, they looked up all the definitions of the
word "definition."
