Thanks, that looks useful, but still doesn't help, because there is
overlap in meaning.

When I read "reflective surface" I think of a blade, which is {boch}.
And a glossy surface might still be reflecting light, does it not?
That's what the wikipeida article explains as well....

Does maybe "glossy" refer to the surface quality, while "shiny" says
what it does? So could I say that a glossy surface is shiny?
