[isabelle-dev] (Not) Using foundational theorems in proofs

I am not totally happy with changes like:
The proof text itself is shorter than before, but in less trivial
examples it produces head ache to instantiate foundational theorems of
locale with OF. Indeed, huge parts of Finite_Set.thy once were written
in that style. The disadvantage there was that when you had to
instantiate over a hierarchy of locales, you would find yourselves
writing ... OF [... OF [...]] cascades. From this I have drawn the
conclusion that it is better to leave module system (locale +
interpretation) and propositional system (_ ==> _ + _ [OF ...]) on their
own, even if both are embedded into the same calculus.
That particular situation is simple enough not to ask for a revert of
the changesets, though.
