Yes that would be good. 
Otherwise they become requirements instead of test points.

Each test has a true/false proposition statement in the "expected results"
statement. e.g.
"The Alt text for each image used as a link identifies the purpose or
function of the image."

I've left the test names with the "must" statements because it seemed to be
more reader friendly. Hmmm, should all the test names be changed to the
true/false statement?
