Adrian,

when all things were equal, I was trying to choose the simplest definition
that I could think of. Restricting I_F to particular signatures seemed to
me a significant complication. Your proposal gives the same semantics as
far as I can see, and has no benefits -- only drawbacks (more complex
description).
