4.1.5 Function Calls

STA / rule 3
"the type of each actual argument is a subtype of some type that can be
promoted to the type of the correponding function parameter."
statEnv |- Type1 <: Type1'
statEnv |- Type1' can be promoted to Type1''
    The "middleman" Type1' is unnecessary. The first premise implies that
        statEnv |- Type1 can be promoted to Type1'
    which, with the second premise and the transitivity of promotion,
    implies that
        statEnv |- Type1 can be promoted to Type1''
    which is a more concise statement of the constraint.
