IMHO, the "spec" should be about shared interoperability based on the 
protocol and the transport.  Static data like displays and/or file 
formats may be "recommendations" or "oh-by-the-way", but not SPECs.

Objects can be shared over APRS and are therefore specs.  Overlays are 
for local display and, IMHO, are not specs.
