But an example is just that, an explanation on a specification rule 
which adds nothing to its generic formulation but a clarification, 
without covering all possible scenarios, but only the more relevant for 
clarification sake, and might be labeled as non-normative. This is what 
I meant (specifically a 'logical' separation, not a 'physical' 
relocation, as opposit to a whole discarding of use cases). Sorry if I 
posted a messed up concept.
