While I agree with the idea, I disagree with the rationale,

You state that it made extra work to figure out what had been done,
when really it
shouldn't if the person tasked with finishing the feature is following
this plan.

Since they would go out and read the spec, propose a test list, write the tests,
then see where the current percentage done code was on their test set, then
finish things off?

The fact anyone would believe that a 50% in GL3.txt was in any way meaningful,
like they are just rough guesses to say, this isn't finished, if
someone wants to finish
it then you'll need to look into it a bit more. It might be better to just say
WIP + username of last person to look at it instead of putting percentages in.
