Jaro - do we just copy the tag mechanisms and make up new tags for
requirements groups, re-use existing tags or create a new scoped set of
tags for requirements and a separate file control.  It would also be nice
to have the list of UC collapsed by default in the overview - or move
requirements up to top of document?  IMHO the simple clean requirements
will be the point of entry, and where we need to work, and the UC almost an
appendix with further evidence as required.,
