This is a natural generalization of RAs over COFEs.

All operations have to be non-expansive, and the validity predicate $\mval$ can now also depend on the step-index.

\paragraph{The division operator $\mdiv$.}

One way to describe $\mdiv$ is to say that it extracts the witness from the extension order: If $\melt\leq\meltB$, then $\melt\mdiv\meltB$ computes the difference between the two elements (\ruleref{cmra-div-op}).

From this, we could extract a sequence of witnesses $(\meltC_m)_{m}$, and we need to arrive at a single witness $\meltC$ showing that $\melt\leq\meltB$.

Without the division operator, there is no reason to believe that such a witness exists.

However, since we can use the division operator, and since we know that this operator is \emph{non-expansive}, we can pick $\meltC\eqdef\meltB\mdiv\melt$, and then we can prove that this is indeed the desired witness.

\ralf{The only reason we actually have division is that we are working constructively \emph{and}, at the same time, remain compatible with a classic interpretation of the existential. This is pretty silly.}
