Theorem zfreg 8665
 Description: The Axiom of Regularity using abbreviations. Axiom 6 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 21. This is called the "weak form." Axiom Reg of [BellMachover] p. 480. There is also a "strong form," not requiring that 𝐴 be a set, that can be proved with more difficulty (see zfregs 8781). (Contributed by NM, 26-Nov-1995.) Replace sethood hypothesis with sethood antecedent. (Revised by BJ, 27-Apr-2021.)
