Very nice article and approach that is required today. But I have an assumption: “How will I test an application that is simply not there. How will I develop functions and Items when I don’t know their object model. Very well I know I will be having BRDs but are those comprehensive enough to incorporate new changes into the automation infrastructure.Will it not increase the maintenance in the longer run.”

nice approach.
new to this test language but looks interesting.

We have tried many times to make automation a success but due to some restriction (includes one you mentioned) it always failed.

So currently our automation scope is very limited and as you said we just run scripts for regression testing.
changing functionality is also a major set back for out automation aims.

There is a new script free tool called autoczar, which uses KDT framework, no need to develop any framework, framework and test management is inbuilt in the tool. It is a nice, simple and easy to use tool.
