I'm on the second round of writing some business use cases for a software
project. This software is like FileMaker Pro and there are instances where
the FMP hits a system (database). My first draft used the following outline:

I Intro
II Description
III Actors
IV Workflow Diagram
V Steps
VI Business Rules

Typical use case format. The bosses liked it, but wanted a table in
addition to everything else above. In this table they want columns showing
the Actors, Business Rules and Metadata. I'm guessing that this Metadata is
going to be the encoding a user does to the data before it's entered into
the DB. Working the "Metadata" stuff into my use case and the table is not
a problem.

I just can't figure out what to call the table. Criteria? Seriously, my
brain is asleep on this one.
