Also, I'm not sure what I'd do specifically with the measure - other than gain confidence that it's going up (not down). In practice, its difficult to get this number because we ...

Unfortunately, that's hard to measure in an automated fashion; the best measurement we have is by hand, correlating tests to requirements and counting up what didn't get covered. Code coverage can be used as an indicator of ...
