Here are my thoughts about what we might call testable features, at a  
50,000 foot level, along with whether they're required or optional  
(remembering that required features require four implementations,  
whilst optional ones only require two). There are sub-requirements  
within each feature that we can discuss -- and some of them may be  
optional -- but I'd like to see if we can get agreement on a coarse- 
grained list before diving into each one and discussing how we test it.

I think much of the information that was in Arun's list is in here;  
I've just tried to identify the features, separate from how they're  
tested.

Comments and suggestions welcome.
