      Description

      See discussion in https://github.com/apache/arrow/issues/1296

      I believe the specification documents Layout.md, Metadata.md, and IPC.md would benefit from being consolidated into a single Markdown document that would be sufficient (along with the Flatbuffers schemas) to create a complete Arrow implementation capable of reading and writing the binary format
