Dear Silvia,

I know, I know ... but the fastest way to go forward, is 1/ to do some 
changes and 2/ listening to the ones who complain, rather than 
discussing what could be changed and take then actions to implement 
these changes. My target is a publication after tomorrow's telecon, so 
I'm happy to implement changes asap and endorse them tomorrow on the call.

I agree, we need to refer to them. After a second thought, subsection 
headings are not bad :-) We could even further identify these 
requirements with a label 'rxx' in the line of [1]

+1, you can add another annex with this table and simply refer to it in 
the section 5.5

Hum, I agree the requirements are important, but we extract them from 
the scenarios. Completely reversing the order could give the impression 
that we had the dimensions and we have imagined scenarios to justify 
them. So I think the most logical order is: a) scenario, b) four 
dimensions, c) additional requirements
