Again, in a circumstance in which a tech writer was trying to push best
practices this would be a good rule, but this isn't my case.

Specifically, I'm talking about a Project Management Office saying "We don't
need no stinking requirements" and an Architecture Department saying "We
can't build it without requirements." Even more specifically, the
Architecture Department cannot measure nor report any successes (milestones)
without the requirements.
