The rule says that binding type glyphs can be placed on "a moveable container" but what is the definition of "a moveable container"? Obviously a box or a pouch, but what is the minimum qualification? Like could you glyph a book? What about shackles? What about a scroll? A lock? A shoe? A hat?

Glyph Bindings are used to seal a moveable container, which must be smaller than an average door and must be able to close completely (i.e. a scroll tube, a book, etc.).

Bindings differ from Symbols in that a container sealed with a Binding can be moved.
(Chapter 1)

It can be a large chest or crate, but has to be a container that can be closed. Shackles might be allowed but for now I would say no since it's not technically a container.

Scrolls. Locks, shoes, and hats aren't containers. Yes hats and shoes might be able to have items placed inside but they aren't actually containers.

If Shackles becomes a glyphable item then I officially submit a Greater Escape skill (which includes magical shackles and engulf)

Well for now let's play it as a 'no' for shackles. They technically aren't a container, and one could argue that Escape doesn't open the shackles, just allows the user to slip out of them.

As always, can submit clarifications/updates/ideas to Dave for review by rules.

Would a way to clarify it be:

If you cannot see whats inside without breaking the glyph it could be glyphed?

Ex:
Shackles - easily see everything
Book - can't see what it contains without opening it
Hat - can see what its holding
Scroll tube - can't see what it contains without opening it
Rolled up scroll - works as well because you can't see what the scroll says without unrolling it even though it isn't in a container.
Chest - can't see whats inside without opening it

Just a thought
