Re: [isabelle] Lattices with explicit carrier set vs. lattices with implicit carrier set

So it is a "challange". My question is whether having such a theory
makes it easy to tailor Isabelle to do such lifting between the two
kinds of theory development? How much programming work would this be
to have a usable framework?
