A "can-rewrite" relation between flavours, written f1 >= f2, is a
binary relation with the following properties
R1. >= is transitive
R2. If f1 >= f, and f2 >= f,
(R1) >= is transitive
(R2) If f1 >= f, and f2 >= f,
then either f1 >= f2 or f2 >= f1
Lemma. If f1 >= f then f1 >= f1

Theorem: S(f,a) is well defined as a function.
Proof: Suppose (a -f1-> t1) and (a -f2-> t2) are both in S,
and f1 >= f and f2 >= f
Then by (R2) f1 >= f2 or f2 >= f1, which contradicts (WF)
Then by (R2) f1 >= f2 or f2 >= f1, which contradicts (WF1)
Notation: repeated application.

(IG1) there is an n such that
for every f,t, S^n(f,t) = S^(n+1)(f,t)
(IG2) if (b -f-> t) in S, and f >= f, then S(f,t) = t
that is, each individual binding is "self-stable"
By (IG1) we define S*(f,t) to be the result of exahaustively
applying S(f,_) to t.
