2.1.3 Notations for inference rules
The convention of using a horizontal bar with no premises above
it makes sense logically, but it can be hard to read when there
are many such inferences following consecutively on a page, as
occurs, for example, in 8.2.3.1.1 "Name tests".  It would be
better to have some non-whitespace representation of an empty 
set of premises, such as a single
centered minus sign, or a mathematical empty set sign.
