[rspec-devel] Should controller specs fail if you don't make a request?

A friend of mine just IMed me asking why his spec didn't pass. It looked like
describe FooController, "POST create" do
it "should build a new Foo" do
I looked at the spec for a second, then looked at the implementation
and it looked fine (he's retrofitting specs on). Looked back at the
spec and realized that he never actually made a request.
So here's my question: should controller specs fail if no request is
made? I have NEVER written a controller spec in which I didn't
_intend_ to make a request, though I have forgotten to make a request
plenty of times.
I had planned to just implement an expectation error if no request is
made. But there's a small chance that that's too invasive. I highly
doubt it though. Does anyone have specs that would incorrectly fail
as a result of this change? Please show code if you do.
