Indeed. Functional requirements often are represented by their lack.
"Don't need it. We know the design already."
Some use cases I've seen (or proposed) have been dismissed as, "That'll
never occur. Nobody'll want that."
It can be hard to establish a template for one class of applications by
looking at templates for others. The technical writer is in a good
position to be an outside voice who points out missing items. Does the
proposed software have additional uses, heretofore unimagined? Will they
later become the driving force for the redesign? Web pages were once
static, then dynamic, and now interactive in ways unanticipated back in
the days of Mosaic.
