RE: examples in spec?

I am very syntax oriented - show me the angle brackets and I will think the spec is comprehensible.  Otherwise it will be a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about an "abstract component model" or something.

I find illustrative examples very helpful in understanding specs. I think the spec should contain short examples for each construct. The spec should be self-contained, i.e. not require you to refer to the primer. The primer should contain an extended example and perhaps clarify subtle features.

My recollection is that most examples would be in the primer, Part 1 & 3 
containing only a small number of introductory examples.
