On my last job all the technical leads were required to sign and date
the final document. We did this for ISO reasons (our in-house expert
said it was a good idea). If their signature was in the document for
everyone to see, they were real interested in it being just right.
While this helped assure quality, it lead to some real interesting
debates over things like margin size. Generally, it worked.
