In a case like this, isn't "All" the same as "any" or even "a", or  
even omitting the article entirely?

For example:

   describe 'Any payment_details view' do
     it 'should have a card number field' do
       ...

   describe 'A payment_details view' do
     it 'should have a card number field' do
       ...

   describe 'payment_details view' do
     it 'should have a card number field' do
       ...

   # or whatever the class is called
   describe PaymentDetailsView do
     it 'should have a card number field' do
       ...

Cheers,
Wincent
