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.
