As a Canadian, I'm mortified to find myself agreeing with the Yanks :P , but that is the case. I've never heard of a "pause" being used in a formal sense; it's always been used when addressing children or inexperienced amateur musicians.

Still, the purpose of the glossary is to educate such people (I'm now including the whole UK and their penal colony as "inexperienced" :), so I've added "pause" to the glossary. :)
The other American English word I'm familiar with for fermata is "hold."
