What's the role of documentation in QA?

For agile software projects, it should be kept
in mind that one of the agile values is
"Working software over comprehensive
documentation", which does not mean 'no'
documentation. Agile projects tend to stress
the short term view of project needs;
documentation often becomes more
important in a project's long-term context.
What's the big deal about 'requirements'?

For agile projects, which may be more

amenable to changing requirements, detailed
documented requirements may not be
needed. However some type of documented
specfications are still important, in the form
of user stories or something similar. In agile
projects, some or all requirements may be
embodied in user stories.
