--- Comment #2 from Abel Braaksma <abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl> ---
Thanks for fixing this.

The point of the second example is that there's currently nothing in the spec
that shows the effect of binding with partial function application.

Since an anonymous function and partial function application are distinct (and
led to a lot of discussion on the WG), I think it is fair to add it, even if it
may be considered superfluous.

The difference between the examples is that the first one *explicitly* binds
the context through a variable binding. The second one *implicitly* does the
same, but hides it through the PFA technique.

I think it helps understanding this rather fuzzy part of the spec (not fuzzy
per se, but fuzzy because it makes everybody's head spin) and by adding it it
helps those people that understand spec prose better through examples than
through the prose itself.

Either way, I'll settle with what you come up with.
