Hi Klaus,

Perhaps it would be more constructive to point out few most horrible
cases for someone to get started with fixing the mess? The thing is,
people who write specs live boring dull lives, with grey sky out if
the window 365 days a year. If you choose to criticize, do it with
panache :) Place a finger at the exact location of issue and use the
most provocative tone you have. It helps :) Well, kinda :)
