Hi Sebatian,
 I'm not familiar with the approach you showed but I have seen similar things.

Something that is in vogue right now is so-called Behaviour-Driven-Development (BDD)*,
and something called Ubiquitous Language (UL). It was being investigated by a PhD student of mine.
BDD seems to suit web-based application development and testing, while UL is really all about
having an agreed glossary between customers and developers.

Having taken a quick look at the paper you mentioned, I think EARS might be a better fit to what we want.

Regard, Andrew
