We have three basic types of specs; requirements, design, functional
(implementation).

I review all three types for technical completeness and accuracy.

I also edit making corrections only when necessary to make the meaning
unambiguous. The exception to this is if I' going to use the material
nearly verbatim in my docs.
In this case I try to get the specs to read as I want my docs to read so
that when the next release comes along, I have a much easier job of
identifying the changes.
