I like the SMIL spec in this regard. It has normative/non-normative interspersed, but clearly marked.
This makes both for easy reading and for easy reference. Specs that make a more rigid
separation (XForms comes to mind) are very difficult to read because you keep going
back and forth like anything.

(Note that I'm only referring to the local structure of the SMIL spec, the global
structure is not something I'm proud of:-)
