Crap. True.

Now I see why it is how it is.

The maximum extent would be to accept overloads (and helpers) that are
at the parameter type's declaration, because they would necessarily be
in all specializations as well. That would be pretty much the same as how it
currently accepts operators defined on the type, just one symtable up. It
also solve the "implementation restriction" from the manual - and only
that. I

That *could* be a possibility. I'd need to think about it a bit though to
be sure that there are no caveats.
