No, I'm not. Just read the words I wrote. I simply reject the idea
that a trait specialization is part of the definition of the type(s)
it applies to.

Mssrs Little and Bergman seem to want me to mean something else, or to
qualify my statement so that I "agree in a wider sense". I mean what
I said: I disagree with the statement in any sense.
