Finally I would add one other good practice: specifications should not
claim to be simple, easy, device-independent, conformant to WAAA or
QAG, or make other claims about their quality or conformance to other
specifications. While it is fine to indicate that one of the
requirements of the specification may have been to be easy / device-
independent / whatever, it should IMHO be up to the reader to make the
determination of whether the working group was successful or not.

(This is the last of the eleven comment mails I had on the QASG
document. I hope they were of use.)
