The purpose of this email is to seek some clarification on what people think
about the transitive nature of specializationOf.

James' semantics [1] defines this relation as transitive.

Do you think specializationOf is transitive?
If not,  can you give a counter example?


PS: tracker, this is ISSUE-29
