Managed Pathes : Explicit or Wildcard

This may seem obvious to some but when I was offered an explaination of these two options I appreciated the clarification:

Explicit inclusions define a site “endpoint”. For example, if I defined a managed path called ‘home’ as an Explicit inclusion, I could create a site collection at http://servername/home.

Wildcard inclusions can not be used as a site “endpoint”. For example, if I defined a managed path called ‘applications’ as a Wildcard inclusion, I could NOT create a site collection at http://servername/applications. However, I could create a site collection at http://servername/applications/webmail
