Very true. I oversimplified matters by mistake.
One question, I suppose, is does seq distinguish the arrows, or does it
distinguish the exponential objects in the category? since you are using it
as an object in order to apply seq, and does that distinction matter? I'd
hazard not, but its curious to me.
