Re: Inheritance of Methods

    Here's another alternative which is more
    precise than "inheritance of behavior":

     "Inheritance of method applicability" 

    That is, what subclasses inherit from their superclasses is the
    applicability of methods to instances of them. In some cases, the class
    of more than one argument comes into play, but the share of
    responsibility for determining applicability is inherited. 

That's good.
