I wouldn't call them justifications, but maybe reasons. IF they are brief,
I'd put each one ahead of the corresponding procedure. I figure if a user
starts with an understanding of why he has to do something, he's more
likely to accept the actions he's supposed to do and just do them, instead
of stopping midway and asking himself what is going on and whether or not
he really should be doing this.
