Hi Luc,

OK. It is the phrasing that is odd. I have no problem with "defined as" in itself, but the phrase "defined as Influence", as this does not seem meaningful. 

Given what you say, would one of the following be OK?

Specialization is not defined as a subtype of Influence
Specialization is not defined as a kind of Influence

Thanks,
Simon
