Works for me.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the word "specifier to mean a single test class/method, and would have picked --case/-c or --test/-t given the choice. 

However, given that the recently chosen short form is -s and the title of that section is "SPECIFIER", then --specifier is nicely consistent.
