Hi Bill,

If most of the specs end-up in GitHub, do you think we could use this
migration to write the specifications in Asciidoc (or MarkDown) ? This way
we could use Pull-Requests when it comes to amending a specification ? ATM
we exchange PDFs and emails about what could be improved in the
specification. Using Asciidoc would ease this process.
