Mind-maps provide the ability to hierarchically structure (like a tree), but are sometimes more reader-friendly. Mind-mapping tools often allow references between different parts of the map.

We like to include references to specific scenarios in the tree, in the example below the major quality goals, e.g. Performance, usability, correctness and others.
