I did this once many years ago and it worked out very well. It was a
desperation move by the product manager to save an off-the-track project,
but it worked. I wanted to do it again but they said it was too unorthodox a
development methodology.

If you can finagle your way into the spec-writing side of things, it's very
similar and you end up with a darned good spec that lends itself nicely to
creating a great set of docs.

My 2¢,
