    It's easy to say this would be useful (it would!) but I can't even imagine how it might be auto-generated.

    Zeplin works by showing the dimensions of the selected element, and relative distances to all other elements. This used to be done by designers manually (redlines/spec sheets) but it takes time because it still needs to be done in a logical way that is easy to comprehend.

    I was speaking with developers from another company using Zeplin, whose design team were worried about relying on Zeplin - if the service disappeared tomorrow, then all notes would be gone, and suddenly developers would be left in the lurch, with the designers left with a huge backlog of artboards that need manual speccing again. Perhaps this can be mitigated by having an export of the kind that Zeplin can read while offline - so that processes aren't wholly tied to the uptime of the Zeplin service - as I guess this is part of the reason for wanting export functionality.
