I am not sure if this is the right place to post this message, but it is
related to  the upcoming release as I am prosing adding something
to the Isabelle library.

While working with complete distributive lattices, I noticed that
the Isabelle class complete_distrib_lattice is weaker compared to
what it seems to be regarded as a complete distributive lattice.

As I needed the more general concept, I have developed it,
and if Isabelle community finds it useful to be in the library,
then I could provide the proofs or integrate it myself in the

The only axiom needed for complete distributive lattices is:

Inf_Sup_le: "Inf (Sup ` A) ≤ Sup (Inf ` {f ` A | f . (∀ Y ∈ A . f Y ∈ Y)})"

and from this, the equality and its dual can be proved, as well as
the existing axioms of complete_distrib_lattice and the instantiation
to bool, set and fun.

Best regards,
