Um, would that be like making storyboards? Because that's what we used
to do back before we wrote tests for everything first. Or maybe I'm
confused, and that was Narrative Driven Development.

Or do you mean the so-called "behavior" approach to front-end
programming, where the class attributes of objects in markup are used
to create JavaScript objects on page load? Saves a lot of code, but
the routines used to find objects by class name are notoriously slow.
