You would either finish within the two-year deadline, or you would never
finish at all. To finish a spec, or anything else, you need the
self-discipline to stop adding things. People coming into the process
half-way through find it very hard to do that. Whether you're new to it or
an old hand, it's always easier to add things than to take things out.
