     Not necesarily have to be "added to the specs" themelves.  I was
     thinking more along the lines of a separate XML instance that may
gather
     information from the specs and that information be fed into the
     test generation engine.   Whether or not  Xpointers, or element (id),
or
     something else is used to extract (or point to) information will depend
     on the type and quantity of information available.  Sometimes Xpointers
     tend to address rather specific areas, which may not contain enough
    information to either develop the test or the assertion.
