Isn't the Spec-Checklist (which is linked from SpecGL),


an ICS pro-forma for SpecGL?  The introduction says:

"...intended to be convenient for organizers and evaluators of QA projects 
in W3C Working Groups, to facilitate assessing specifications against the 
checkpoints. The table includes spaces for scoring each checkpoint, "yes" 
(satisfied), "no" (not satisfied), "n/a" (not applicable)."
