The spec: namespace holds old, misleadingly inaccurate (for ES4) docs  
based on AS3. Nothing there has been touched in many moons. We made  
it inaccessible to avoid repeated confusion, and sure enough, when it  
was reopened inadventently again for a few days, almost immediately  
there was confusion.

We could just remove spec: at some point. The plan is not to use  
dokuwiki for actual spec production, since it isn't rich enough to  
generate the final Ecma or ISO spec format.
