"QA specialist should not be involved in the actual gathering / creation of the requirements." At the end of the first sentence in your answer. Apart from that you make some great points such as not letting letting the process become a bottleneck.

comment Workflow shortcut to meet the release deadline
I strongly disagree with a QA specialist should not be involved in the creation of requirements. From experience, I have found that getting testing involved from the start of a project (requirements creation) has helped us catch bugs or potential bugs before any time has been wasted on writing code for a component that would be fundamentally flawed.
