Is there a simple way to specialize

I don't think there is an easy way.
You could specialize this method for certain types of Derived, but you can't partially specialize methods.
I.e., this could be possible (I did not actually try):
  template<typename EssentialPart>
  void MatrixBase<Matrix<MyType, Dynamic, Dynamic>::makeHouseholder(...)

But you can't specialize like:
  template<int rows, int cols>
  template<typename EssentialPart>
  void MatrixBase<Matrix<MyType, rows, cols>::makeHouseholder(...)

How would you like to modify makeHouseholder? Ideally, we should only specialize a sub-part of the function for different types (which we can do by delegating the function to a helper-struct).
