I meant the Specification entries which are already in the binary jar
manifests, for example:

Specification-Title: Apache Droids Core
Specification-Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation
Specification-Version: 0.1-incubating

These would also be useful in the source and javadoc jar manifests.

[The Implementation entries really only apply to binary jars.]
