                          This template was provided during the course attended by Adrian Mortimer
                          on determining and describing requirements specifications. (See:
                              http://repository:13531/more/UI_Metadata/public/1/207 ) 
                          From the template document:
                          "This template is built on the basis that every requirement is
                           measurable - somehow."
                          The template is a set of headings with instructions / guidelines
                          on the content that should be provided. 
                          The contents of the template are:
                               Requirement Shell
                               Requirement Numbering
