At the top of the spec, there is the following issue:

#
#    ISSUE: TODO: Add examples using the sync and the async APIs.
#

Obviously we should do something there and remove the issue. But I wanted
to talk about something else.

The sync API... What will we do there, hide it? It's very unhelpful when
searching around the spec as reference. I've actually hidden it in my
local spec version because I sometimes get confused when searching and
landing on a «sync» part of the API (well, when someone *does* implement
the sync parts, they'll have to be there, but for now keeping them out
makes for a smaller spec to read :P)

That sync part of the spec is very out of date and gets no love.

What do we do with it? Only leaving the note there leaves a lot of broken
windows in the spec.
