It's a tradeoff:

ReSpec.js pro:

* No setup costs

ReSpec.js con:

* Loads slower because of script. You get a flash of unstyled content.
User experience suffers.
* Legacy DOM-style of defining methods/attributes appears to be the default.

Anolis pro:

* Cross-specification cross-references

Anolis con:

* Harder (requires Python)

In the end it comes down to what the editor wants; I think Anolis is
better because the end user experience is better.
