Definition df-ac 8899
Description: The expression CHOICE will be used as a readable shorthand for any form of the axiom of choice; all concrete forms are long, cryptic, have dummy variables, or all three, making it useful to have a short name. Similar to the Axiom of Choice (first form) of [Enderton] p. 49.

There is a slight problem with taking the exact form of ax-ac 9241 as our definition, because the equivalence to more standard forms (dfac2 8913) requires the Axiom of Regularity, which we often try to avoid. Thus, we take the first of the "textbook forms" as the definition and derive the form of ax-ac 9241 itself as dfac0 8915. (Contributed by Mario Carneiro, 22-Feb-2015.)
