--- Comment #3 from Travis Leithead [MSFT] <travil@microsoft.com> ---
I certainly see the attractiveness of this for spec writers. If more of the
boilerplate can be automated, that's pretty good.

On the other hand, this might lead to the level of formalism of creating a new
spec programming language with full syntax validation, which might restrict the
freedom of prose in algorithms, thus making it trickier to write "correct"
specs, and serving as even more of a barrier-of-entry for new spec writers.
