Theorem dvelim 1968
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 𝑥𝑧, conjoin them, and apply dvelimdf 1967.

Other variants of this theorem are dvelimf 1966 (with no distinct variable restrictions) and dvelimALT 1961 (that avoids ax-10 1466). (Contributed by NM, 23-Nov-1994.)
