How about making the glossary XML-RPC aware?
Normally, user.html.glossary is the "end of the line", as far as the glossary-lookup-chain is concerned.
But how about a #glossaryServer (table) directive, that html.refGlossary (?) would look at it? The table would contain the info needed to ask an XML-RPC server to try to translate a glossary reference into something else.
This way you could have a global distributed glossary. In your case for SN, you'd want to host it on the dynamic server, and use it with #glossaryServer on the static server.
There's lots of missing pieces to this idea as I've presented it, but I'm not the XML-RPC guru you are, so if you're interested in this idea, I'd rather see you guys architect it! :-)
