3.2.2 Normalization judgment

"the above rule is a shorthand for:
statEnv |- [Object]_Subscript == Mapped Object"
    I would say there's no need to retain '==' here. The standard '=' of
    inference rules seems to have the right semantics.  See, e.g.,
    4.8.2 / STA / rule 3, or 5.14 / SCP / rule 2.

    Moreover, a mapping rule is not just a shorthand for a judgment, but
    for a whole inference rule, with the given judgment as the conclusion,
    and generally no premises.
    There are a few normalization rules (in 4.7.1 and that *do*
    have a premise, but there's nothing here to support that syntax.
