Yes, I agree there.

That's a good example of the way things currently work. I agree this is
proper but here you aren't  "over defining" terms but you are "re-defining"
them, working from a general case (or scope) towards a specific one. This is
quite different (I feel) from the example I posted where the two definitions
were within the same scope.

Re-defining functions while extending classes is kosher (and indeed
essential), "over-defining" them is not, IMHO.

I hope that helps illustrate my case an I wish you a very good new year to
you as well.
