1. A Specification-Issue is a polite way for a Specification-Quality-Control Checker to say, “I think I may have identified a Defect, but I choose not to say for sure just yet, and leave the decision to the Author.”
Error/Slip -> (Specification-Issue) -> Specification-Defect ->
Fault/Bug/System Defect -> Malfunction
2. A Specification-Issue can be directly inserted into the specification using the Parameter “Issue”. When it is resolved it can either be removed, or the Resolution can be Documented.
