Do you know if it is a scheduled improvement to Launchpad to have spec
names changeable after creation ?

ok, I misunderstood dependencies defined in this way -- they are
probably less relevant to the artistic specs, unless there is an
overriding technical issue towards implementation. 

I was thinking more in an Object Oriented way -- a spec is a "subclass"
of another, and retains some or all of the properties of its
"parent"... and as such, a parent spec cannot become completed until all
of its sub-children are finished too. Does that make sense in a
workflow environment, or am I speaking gibberish?
