Software requirements - a UI checklist

The checklist provided below isn't ready for prime time, but I wanted to make sure I put a copy of this information somewhere. Basically, I have started to create a checklist of detailed items I need for user interface screens when creating a detailed design specification. So, what I've started to do is list all possible user interface field types, and what features of each interface element that can vary.

Frankly I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but if you're into heavyweight processes, this information is certainly needed by someone at some point.
