I would suggest that MOST engineers designing buildings have not read ACI 301. But there appears to be the general impression that if you have referenced ACI 301, you have "addressed the issue."
If you haven't read 301 and 117, and don't know what's in them, how do you know the tolerances are appropriate for your construction?
ACI tried doing a series of seminars on writing specifications based on ACI 301, but they were cancelled because no one came. ACI 301, like ACI 117, is really not very well written, which probably didn't motivate anyone to want to emulate it.
ACI 117 in particular, seems to be attempting at "pseudo-legalese", but what it amounts to is a lot of unecessary words. Someone who is not familiar with it may have difficulty understanding some of the requirements.
