It's definitely a good example.  In reading it, what occurred to me to be a
logical next step would be to provide examples of how the requirements might
change, and see how and whether the KR systems can accommodate the changes.
Even nicer would be the ability to track the changes, allowing one to review
the course of evolution, and possibly roll back changes that didn't work
