Actually I have no idea except that it's a lot :) I just know that it's a lot of API specs, many RDF and XML security specs, and then again a bunch of others. It's a rare week when I don't learn about a few new documents using it.

So to answer Martin's question I don't know if using JavaScript for spec writing is "dominant" but it certainly is mainstream.
