David Radley commented on ATLAS-1839:

Hi [~ivarea],
Thank you for your interest. I am in the process of putting together json files 
that will define the types that are required for the glossary. I am also 
putting up am OMAS API for the Glossary for review - this is an 
API that is optimized for glossary user interfaces. I would appreciate your 
feedback on ATLAS-1698. 
To go through what you are looking to do:
- yes you can create terms for Person, such as Person_Name, Person_Surname, 
Date_of_Birth etc
- the way we are looking to represent attributes is using the spine objects. 
See https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/ATLAS/Area+2+-+Glossary for 
more details.      
- regarding validation of string attributes. I am not aware of this 
functionality in Atlas - though you might be able to do this in Ranger. I think 
this would be good enhancement to the Atlas entity model - I suggest that you 
raise a Jira for this.
