Just finished reading SpecGL (cover to cover).  Thank you Karl and Dom for 
putting so much of your time into getting this together and published.

Since we advocate doing a quality review of the document, I hope its not 
too late to make some of these changes typos, awkward English, missing 
words, etc.

1.  Goals and Motiviation:  1st sentence
s/specifications precise/specifications that are precise/

2. About this document
replace principles with requirements in The overall objective of these 
principles and good practices is to facilitate

3. About this document  paragraph, If in a hurry.  This doesn't really make 
sense, since everyone regardless of if you are in a hurry, will start with 
the first section.  Propose rewrite
If in a hurry  just read the first section, Specifying conformance  this 
may be all you need to read in order to reach the expected outcome of 
adhering to this document, i.e., specifying conformance.

4. Structure of this document.  Last paragraph
s/has to follow the conformance section/must satisfy the conformance 
requirements in the conformance section/
