Because just writing what you propose would mean I was specifying something I
didn't understand. On the other hand, specifying something I _do_ understand
and then simplifying it and reaching what you proposed (which is what I just
did) means that I actually understand the spec and am confident that we were
indeed proposing the same thing.
