I've gone ahead and abandoned 1). Item 2) was abandoned by its author. Rather
than abandon 3) I have rebased it and updated it with a potential alternative
to consider (reuse ethercalc basically) since there has been some renewed
interest in having survey tooling available to us that is infra hosted.
Now that I have had a chance to start going through these expect more updates
on various specs as I manage to work through them and update those that need
updates and abandon those that are no longer applicable. If you have a spec up
that needs rebasing feel free to push that up too :)
