Hi James,

So it involves essentially trying to make a larger use case that 
includes some aspects from other use cases so that it encompasses some 
more user requirements. I think it would be good to focus on a specific 
domain. We're trying to use this for explanation in the requirements report.

You don't need to volunteer if you don't have the bandwidth. I just 
think it's best if the person who takes on the the use case uses it in 
the domain they want.
