Which is unfortunate though somewhat understandable. Once you release a
spec, you don’t have the power to revise it so easily anymore.
Sometimes, there are situations where you want to correct your possible
bad assumptions until the very last possible moment. Once the actual
products are shipping, your own window for corrections is closed, and
therefore, the spec is frozen.
There is of course a competitive aspect to it as well.
