Is the use of the word "of" correct in the following sentence, or this there a better word? The meaning should be "which requirement the platform must fulfil".

The most important requirements of the platform are performance and functionality.

Of is a preposition. I have edited accordingly. Also changed right to correct, as it makes for an easier read. Thanks. – Jimi Oke Mar 5 '11 at 2:30

I would say 'for', but it's understandable as is.
