I could object to A == A being indeterminate, though, which is the case
with the "forall"-definition.

You could also look at an earlier post by Joel, where he uses, as an
example, "exists"-definitions, which do the contrary, i.e., expand
instead of contract.

I do object in contracting '==' so that ' A == A ' becomes non-true.
IMEHO, that is contracting too far (or, in other words, being too

A naive question: what is the benefit of using tribools in this interval

Fair enough. I'm interested only in the 3-state definition. The 2-state
definition is just narrowing indeterminate->false.
