> While digging around UDF overloading and type conversion it appeared that several topics
aren't currently documented in the CQL spec:
> * Explicit type casting has been added with CASSANDRA-5226 in Cassandra 1.2.2 and is
currently not explained in the spec.
> * UDFs support overloading, this should be explained in the CQL spec, along with a clear
definition of what is considered as an ambiguous function call.
> * In this context it also becomes important to document the type conversion rules, that
is, which type A can be converted to which type B without raising an error.
> * Not directly related but it would also be useful to document the column type changes
that are allowed in {{ALTER TABLE}} statements.
> All these fairly important topics are currently not obvious or hard to figure out for
the user.
