Ideally people wouldn't need to update specs after they are approved, 
but each spec varies in how much detail it has and those details can 
change once you get into code review, so sometimes it's good to update 
the spec later so it's not misleading if someone is reading the spec 
because there is otherwise a lack of docs about the feature. The best 
way to avoid having to update specs after approval IMO is to make sure 
when developing a feature you also have solid documentation outside of 
the spec to go with it, and sometimes getting developers to write useful 
feature documentation is like pulling teeth.
