                    Checkers has an awkwardly worded sentence

Current:

(This is only a "SHOULD" and not a "MUST" requirement because it has been
proven to be impossible. [COMPUTABLE])

Proposed:

This is only a SHOULD and not a MUST requirement because exhaustive and
complete testing of all failure cases would be impossible.

Reason:
If such a requirement is completely impossible, the requirement should likely
not exist. The proposed wording better reflects the nature of such a
requirement.
