In fact I'm not so much against your suggestion of 'remove the term altogether and then, on a second reading of the spec without both Base Specification and "base specification" determine appropriate wording'. It's just that I'm really uncomfortable using "standard" as replacement now, because this will open discussions that will just make us forget what we wanted to do first, and thus lose time.

I'm tempted to suggest a horrible trick that probably only editors can decide on :-)
How about replacing all the remaining occurrences of "base specification" by an artificial token like "[base specification/standard]" (with the brackets) or even "BSS"? This would mark the places we need to discuss in a more neutral way.
