RE: And the DTD says, "I'm NOT dead yet!!"

I see your point.  Precision would seem 
to be an issue; that is, to determine if 
and where the agreement is incomplete or 
contrary.  Closing a system based on 
prose is quite a chore.

For those who wonder why some specs take 
forever to complete...

Not really.  If the formal description disagrees
with the prose, it must be changed to agree with
the prose.
