Using the existing state of the web app specs, can you give a code example 
of what it might be like to work with them?  I think working from code 
examples is a good way to make a spec so as to ensure normal programmers 
can understand and work with them!  A spec might have a great theoretical 
model but be a pain to work with when you actually start coding.
