All,I posted a question on Mike Cohn's blog about this issue and I got a response.
> Where the formalized story template falls down, IMO, is when the functionality is wanted by /someone else/ other than the end user. This happens quite often, and we either need to figure out a way to represent this information(the user/purchaser, the want, the benefit) using the formalized template, or figure out a different way of capturing the information altogether(maybe in the conversation?), because it tends to be important.

<snip from Mike's response>
A good user story can be about any stakeholder of the system. And the story can just as easily be something other than "want" as in "As a shopper, I am shown complementary products when I start to check out." Or, "As a user, I am forced to change my password every 90 days." So not all stories need "want" in them.
