Release to the public for viewing? Or using? If it's not released under 
an open source license someone who looked at it may write compatible 
code and then be at risk of suit for copying code, methods, whatever.

That's why some shops use double blind development, people who see the 
specs (I use that loosely) write a requirements document which the 
development team then codes.
