Clarifying test expectations is a good idea in principle.  I gather that 
what you're after in (1) is an enumeration of new functionality and in 
(2) corresponding tests.  That sounds reasonable for large new features, 
but might be overkill for small features, no?

I'd like to see the templates and some examples.  Documents would 
preferably be in some open format, like HTML or plain text.

Is there an assumption that, before the patch is committed, that the 
tests in the plan will be implemented and passed?  Are these to be 
automated tests, with the goal that we'll end up with automated 
regression tests for all features?
