Theorem dvelim 1909
 Description: This theorem can be used to eliminate a distinct variable restriction on 𝑥 and 𝑧 and replace it with the "distinctor" ¬ ∀𝑥𝑥 = 𝑦 as an antecedent. 𝜑 normally has 𝑧 free and can be read 𝜑(𝑧), and 𝜓 substitutes 𝑦 for 𝑧 and can be read 𝜑(𝑦). We don't require that 𝑥 and 𝑦 be distinct: if they aren't, the distinctor will become false (in multiple-element domains of discourse) and "protect" the consequent. To obtain a closed-theorem form of this inference, prefix the hypotheses with ∀𝑥∀𝑧, conjoin them, and apply dvelimdf 1908. Other variants of this theorem are dvelimf 1907 (with no distinct variable restrictions) and dvelimALT 1902 (that avoids ax-10 1412). (Contributed by NM, 23-Nov-1994.)
