Indeed I cannot.

There is no semantically discernible difference here.  Under alpha conversion 
(change of local variable name), it would be semantically equivalent to claim

specializationOf(a,luc)
specializationOf(b,luc)

Now what's the difference here between a and b?

They might logically be the same thing.
