I see:

"The requirements which the Working Group currently does not have
agreement to take into account are the following:"
 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-media-annot-reqs-20090119/#requirements

But readers who navigate directly to, for example,
"6.2 ... methods for setting metadata" won't see that.
So for the things that the WG hasn't agreed to yet,
please call them something other than "requirements";
call them "objectives" or "goals" or something.

I wrote this up in the ESW wiki; similar material is
also in wikipedia and other general purpose software
engineering materials.

'document non-requirements too; i.e. stuff that would be nice but isn't
part of the "minimum required to declare victory"'
