Isn't that rather negative Mike?
Too late to fix?

Surely if the 'items list needing fixing' could be defined, hard,
then the will to fix them exists? I suppose that would include specs
with gaps that need plastering etc?

It would surely be a better usage of time than
the last weeks worth of critique without solution options, which is
what xml-dev is famous for.

Never too late?
