I'm not sure I agree that is a good reason.  If there is a specificity
problem with Hoogle, that should be adressed in the interface e.g. by
providing more information about the search results, or letting the
user restrict his search (filtering out parts of the hierarchy from
the result list, for instance). 

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
