In the Standard in teh section devoted partial specialization there is nothing said about cases when a primary template has only one template parameter. In this case sometimes it is impossible to declare a partial specialization and instead of a partial specialization we have an explicit specialization.

For example

#include <iostream>

namespace N
{
template <int>
struct A
{
A() { std::cout << "A<int>()\n" << '\n'; }
};
}

using N::A;

namespace N
{
template <>
struct A<10>
{
A() { std::cout << "A<10>()\n" << '\n'; }
};
}

int main()
{
A<1> a1;
A<10> a2;
}

How to define a partial specialization for template argument 10?

So I think the description of the section should point out such cases.
