Hmm, I think it is my point indeed. I don't know Aldor syntax, but my idea was
roughly
define A(P: Cat1): Category == with {
arg: () -> Cat1
f: % -> P;
-- the operation arg returns a domain...
arg () == P
}
-- Assume B should be a domain.
B(Q: Cat2): Cat3 with {
if Q has arg: () -> Cat1 then {g: % -> arg()}
}
Thanks for replying that fast,
