To spec or not to spec?

I’m an advocate for writing functional specs. Here are 3 reasons why I
believe specs facilitate development of Websites and applications:

1) Specs serve as the blueprint for the developer, which enables them
to review the project and start coding without delay. Would you build
a house without a written plan?
2) Specs that are reviewed/approved by project stakeholders help
ensure that the finished product meets expectations.

Designing for WAP v/s iPhone (web app)

I'm designing a content website for the iPhone and was asked to investigate
on how the design should translate to the WAP (i.e other internet enabled
devices) version. I've lately seen a trend (not entirely sure though, my
first reaction was WAP is still around?) where the WAP version is pretty
much a downgraded iPhone experience- stripping off the iPhone specific
elements. Does this path work or does the WAP version need a completely
different set of considerations?
