The standard, and thus the templates, break the sections (macros,
values, types, classes, functions and objects) into summary and
detailed specifications, so the -spec refers to the detail
specification of the section. Unfortunately, they are currently not
being used correctly, since the template doesn't accurately portray
both the summary and the detailed sections. The only sections that I
have fleshed out well enough to be correct in this regard are the
functions and classes sections. This is one area where the templates
need work.
