If other people find it valuable, that's all the authority you need. The last time someone tried to set forth a complete specification in a particular order was the Perl 6 documentation project. That didn't work then. I have doubts that specifying a complete compiler and toolchain without at least some trial and error will work, but I could be wrong. Maybe the right place to start is to gather a list of all of the questions you need to have answered and all of the features people want, and then try to unify them into a Perl 6-ish whole. -- c
