and FWIW my plan of attack for the use case whitepaper is to make the design requirements a part of each use case as a subsection. When we actually incorporate a use case into a spec we can collate the design requirements in the form we normally use in that spec.

Yes, absolutely. The binding documents can then use the name and semantics from the model with the corresponding protocol binding info.
