+1 (much better) - for consistency we need I believe a "due to"

Suggestions for examples:

Example 1:

Information about the author or authors are just placed in headers or footers.

Example 2:

Billing addresses and/or contact informations are just placed in headers or footers.

Example 3:

Information about categories of single articles are just placed in headers or footers and not for example in the table of contents.

I don't think we need the word "important"

Failure: Information in the header or footer is not presented at least once in the main body of the document or is not programmatically determinable.

 is  "important"   a testable term.     too subjective to be a failure?   (fails to meet the "always a failure" test for failures?)

Hi all,

what I'm thinking about is adding a failure technique: important information is just placed in headers or footers. What is an "important" information?

Just two examples:

# information about the author is just placed in footer.

# contact informations are just placed in headers or footers and not elsewhere in the document

By adding a failure technique we I believe could adress different user preferences but make sure that important informations which are placed just in headers or footers will fail the SC.

So this issue is very much a user preference and thus flexibility should be afforded to the user to choose which way they want information provided.
