I think that that's not _quite_ right.  The parts of those features
that let you "audit" your builds to see what changes are in there (in
terms of revision control coordinates) is CM --- the stuff that let's
you map requirements onto revision control coordinates are more like
"process management".  Not that the distinction matters much.
