I think there's a lot of merit in that idea.  I've come across loads  
of situations where it was not obvious how to write the specs or code  
so that the code or specs (respectively) are clear and useful.  I'm  
sure they could be distilled to a set of template situations - I'd be  
happy to submit examples.

When people ask what developing with tests is like I tend to say that  
the difference between using RSpec and writing specs is like the  
difference between learning how a paintbrush works and learning how  
to paint a picture.  RSpec's easy enough to pick up, but I wish I  
could point people at a more theoretical how-to that helps with the  
difficult "how do I spec this?" problems.
