I've been playing with hereditary substitution. However, things get very awkward because substitution isn't total unless you index by the environment somehow.

In my old approach terms were not indexed by environment or type but instead there were separate typing judgements. Hereditary substitution simply returned v_tt for invalid cases.

Instead of something like {v: intro | G |- v: t} I'm trying out a different approach of explicitly indexing everything like intro G t. However, in some cases explicit indexing becomes quite awkward to work with.

I'm not sure how to simplify lookup further and prove simple cases like the associativity of hereditary substitution.

Can you help me write proofs over an explicitly indexed style?
