I've added two general techniques to the WIKI:

1. Providing descriptive titles for delivery units [1]
2. Providing descriptive headings [2] (this one needsexamples; I'll
adapt the tests from the existing technique on titles and headings)

As I worked on these, it seemed to me that titles and headings present
slightly different issues that would be best treated in separate
techniques. We can combine them if the team disagrees!

Haven't yet done the one on descriptive labels.

If the team likes this direction, we'll need to delete the existing
draft technique on writing descriptive titles and headings-- I've
already "stolen" material from it!!<grin>
