Even the guy giving that talk objects strongly to "should" but was
overruled by his colleagues for reasons he couldn't justify. If
you're gonna go this way, "must" (**) would be appropriate.

(**) or, better, simply "is" if you really want to make it more like
     specification and less like testing. But of course, "is" makes
     it an assertion, which this BDD philosophy somehow considers
