Oh. I do.

It's just that I recently needed to implement a simple business rule
engine http://mail.python.org/pipermail/bangpypers/2009-December/003262.html
and spent some time thinking about how to map the non-technical users
more expressive but less accurate English specification into the more
rigorous but  less flexible programming language specification. This
has some parallels to that.

Legal documents are a little more convenient though since they are
often (in my experience) structured into "declaration" section (Foo is
Leasor, Bar is Lessee etc.) and then a set of constraints that
establish relationships between the defined entities.

Apart from the $$$ angle, I think there's a lot of interesting
technical stuff going on here as well.
