0008392: Test suite Keywords - use keywords with special prefix to make simpler test case reuse
Use Case

you have test cases that you want to reuse on several test suite, because these test cases to some extent are common to different features.
One example:
One test case that is designed to check that mandatory fields are really checked.

This test case is candidate to be reused on several features of your application but you need to provide a different menu breadcrum for each test case.

The idea is:
if you organize your test specification tree in a way that some test suites are part of the breadcrum, it will be great if you can provide an special attribute (in this case a keyword starting with @#) that will allow to create place holders.

This implementation will work this way
The path from test project (root) to test case will be scanned for the special keywords,
then they will be replaced on Summary or Preconditions.
