The thing I'm documenting is a server, I'm documenting it by interacting with it as a client. I realize that doesn't entirely detract from your point -- you might still be introducing problems that would not affect a "real" client.

My intention is to write BDD-ish stuff (except not with the usual cucumber-style scenario text).
