I haven't checked this (partly because I usually use an old version of
Isabelle --- 2009-2), but if there is a general injection function

finplus1inj :: "'n -> 'n + 1"

then I think you could get what you want by:

definition dellastel :: "('a, 'n + 1) vec \<Rightarrow> ('a, 'n) vec"
  where "dellastel v = (\<chi> i. (v $ (finplus1inj i)))"

So, does Isabelle have such an injection function in the general case?
And would my suggestion work if Isabelle does have it?
