That would be trivial to implement, but I am not sure whether it is
a good idea. Regardless of what the language definition says,
I think it is likely that for some users, just "I" will tell them less
about an inst than "I =< ground". I think that error messages
should prioritise clarity ahead of brevity.

What do other people think?
