i dont know if somebody is already working in this...
what do you think about fresnel effects for specularity too?

there would be fresnel sliders for  specularity, hardness and amount of 
reflection (at the diffuse shader).
maybe an extra specularity color for the fresnel effect could be added, 
but i think that's secondary

imo this would add alot to the power of blender's materials. just an 
example: look at your hand: skin hardly has any specularity if you look 
at it from a very high angle. but as you look at it at a low angle the 
amount of specularity increases.
