This is a joke, isn't it?

Just imagine a nice spec like this:

SuMmArY: Programs for backing up and restoring ext2/ext3 filesystems
nAMe: dump
veRSioN: 0.4b41

I really think that the highlighting rules for spec should be limited to
some set of commonly used tags. At least the first capital letter should
be mandatory upper-case and some case sensitivity fix-ups should be made
for tags composed from multiple words as Andy pointed out. Otherwise
specs written using mcedit would be a big mess IMO.
