So do I.

Specs are misery to read. A few pictures can really make a difference to  
understanding what is happening. (I'd love to have a requirement that  
every algorithm be accompanied by a nice friendly picture that functions  
as a flowchart, but I think that's creating a lot of work that would get  
in the way of other important stuff. Maybe webplatform.org will do them...)

cheers
