Specification Languages

I think we must all be in agreement that some kind of specification language
should be used to define protocols. Perhaps it would be appropriate to make a
list of candidates? The ones that occur at the moment are:

1. ASN.1+[BDP]ER.
2. A subset of ASN.1+[BDP]ER.
3. ASN.1+some other encoding.
4. a subset of ASN.1+some other encoding.
5. C structs, etc.
6. English.
7. Pictures.
8. A new specification language, designed for the purpose.
9. A new specification language, designed for general purpose Internet use.
10. Some other already defined specification language.

Would anyone care to add to this list? Or give some instances of 10?
