Say it was a top laner.
Does it make me a 1700 ELO top laner and nothing else?
or a 1700 player in general?
I would say it makes you a 1700 player at that champion.
I am a ~1500 jungler player... but I am a 1632 Skarner player. (Probably could get higher than 1632, but that's as far as I got with him before I played other champions)
It makes you something Morello wants to nerf.
I main Draven and it's why i'm 1700, I suck at most champs or don't even know the mechanics of them (particularly the rarely played ones).
I haven't been playing LoL very long but if I played a lot more champs I'd probably be far lower in ELO.
