  1. Don't be a fool Daniel. I have defined the types *exactly* how the aprocypthal example has been presented in debate for ages. So a straw-man argument there.
  2. If you actually understand the Liskov/Wing definitions, then you will know that the Circle type is substitutable for Ellipse. But Circle is not a *Liskov/Wing* subtype of Ellipse.
