             Summary: Enhance wording for indirect specialization in 4.3.1
                 Key: CDI-441
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-441
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Clarification
          Components: Inheritance and Specialization
    Affects Versions: 1.2.Final
            Reporter: Tomas Remes

In the 4.3.1. Direct and indirect specialization is following:

Formally, a bean X is said to specialize another bean Y if either:
• X directly specializes Y, or
• a bean Z exists, such that X directly specializes Z and Z specializes Y.

It is not fully straightforward to deduce that the second point here is not just redundant first case, but rather transitive relationship in indirect specialization.  

Therefore I think the wording for indirect specialization should be enhanced. Explanation from Jozef is at http://lists.jboss.org/pipermail/cdi-dev/2014-June/005082.html.
