I'm comparing two (mathematical) notions, say 'functoid' and 'punctoid' (these are fictitious names for the sake of discussion), and I'm arguing that punctoids should be definitely preferred to functoids for a series of reasons. In particular, in order to convey this idea, I would like to use an expression, which is neither too strong nor too faint. I have thought of something like the following: > In a way, what we have just remarked makes the notion of functoid à la Craig and Daniel *overruled* by punctoids. But I'm not sure about my use of the term 'overruled'. I had also thought of replacing it with 'shelved', but this sounds too mild to my ears. Any suggestion?
