I agree, the specification should be as friendly and easy to understand as
possible. We should include sufficient test cases. However, should the test
cases and friendly specifications be separate from the exhaustive/detailed
specification?

I think it would be too confusing to have two separate specifications;
instead there should be one definitive one.
