Thanks again, Ondrej.

In more detail: suppose I'm working inside a context that gives me
the assumption "P f" for some fixed f. I write a lemma involving f,
and begin the proof by applying the transfer method. The transfer
method *generalises* f, and thus loses the fact that P holds for it.

Just citing from The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual:
Goals are generalized over all free variables by default; this is necessary for variables whose types change, but can be overridden for specific variables with e.g. transfer fixing: x y z.
