	Then "specializable" means "this standard says you are supposed
	to specialize this function as part of your normal programming",
	which is not the same as the negation of "it is impossible to
	specialize this function."

    How about the term "tailorable function" for the sense of user is
    expected to be able to tailor the system by providing a special method?

Tailorable or specializable are equally okay with me.

    this one is callable.  

The second sentence of its documentation says it isn't.

	    Dave, Did you see (and have a quick reaction) to the
		alternative define-method-combination.

	I gave it a quick read but I'm not working on method
	combination this month.  It's too easy to use up all the time
	polishing the last details of one issue to the total neglect of
	other equally important issues.

    I wanted the bit of: how much would you object if this were put in
    instead of the writeup you worked on?


    (It is a start) If you object too
    much, and if we are not going to argue it out before the draft goes out,
    then we should put in both choices.

Go ahead.
