I agree that moving the specs could be confusing, I'd propose either:

a) Moving the specs to *-specification and having a big clear note at
the top of the 'root' page directing trafic

or, preferably

b) Adding a *-intro page and a small island at the top of the existing
spec pages that says 'This is a specification, for a quick
introduction to * see *-intro' or something a bit more user-friendly.
