That's exactly right, you've probably put it better than I have! Specializations are quite different from constraints and I have found as you said that specializations are a great way to narrow things down for overload resolution. I use them to dispatch methods and they are the easiest way to specify a known set of kinds on a method set. When you narrow to your specialization set like that it will always work in the same way - no rouge types will mess things up.

Oh sorry, I see that's a little different.
