The following comment in Nat.thy seems odd to me:

shows "P n"
using assms by (rule nat.induct)

Either I do not understand the meaning (what names are different) -- in
which case, please somebody explain -- or it is obsolete -- then please
remove ;).

I think this is nat.induct vs. nat_induct, which only differ in the bound variable, i.e. "nat" vs "n". There might be some really old proofs relying on that.
