I think @header may not be an implementation detail in this case.
If your layout looks like this:
<title><%= @header || 'Default Title' %></title>
And the view we are testing looks like this:
<h1><%= @header = 'Specific Title'></h1>
Then setting @header is an essential behavior for the view spec.
Or am I missing something?
