That's usually considered a bad idea to add stubs to .spec files if
there is no real need for that. And that's really the case, since:

1. there is no real difference between a missing API and a stubbed
in the .spec file one
2. using native dlls "as much as possible" is not encouraged in Wine
at all, and especially for Wine *development*
3. you can't use native versions of ntdll, kernel32 and user32 in any
4. Adding stubs for NT/win2k/win2k3 only APIs will make the things
much worse for some apps, because they could start think that they
are running under those platforms by checking presence of that APIs
