Moving Requirements/Use-cases sections away from the main specification

I would like to make the case for separate Requirements/Use Cases 
documents. For 2 reasons:

- a MUST in the requirements section doesn't mean the same thing as a 
MUST in the main specification. The former applies to the specification 
itself while the latter applies to a user agent. That could be confusing.

- Splitting makes the specification shorter. Use cases may still make 
sense in the specification to help users, but they should be very simple 
and just shown as examples.

feedback?

Max.
