Nice and simple.

Gennadiy Rozental disagrees though. He gives the example of how to
print something as a trait but this acts.

A type in a trait could also be a description or reference of an action
to take even more indirectly.

To me the description of the action and the action is not clear cut.
When describing the action is a level of indirection really necessary to
make it a trait?

I can see both cases...
