Rules and Notes

R1: use the form "<verb> <subject>", e.g. "change reservation"

R2: use <subject> in the correct number (singular/plural): if the actor typically processes several subjects without interruption (due to lunch break, due to end of the day, etc.), then the subject should be in plural. E. g. "insert reports"

What does it take to implement those rules? What does it give?

Side effects

Is there anything that happend or will happen as one implements the rules? This relates to both wanted and unwanted effects ('unwanted' does not imply 'negative').
