Wrong. The super class specifies a contract. This contract must be inherited.

That assumption is bogus, because this is almost never the case. It makes
contract programming basically unusable. Such a strong weakening of the 'in'
contract should not be the default.

I understand all of this, and the fact that it works that way is a bug.

He is right in that the implementation works that way. It shouldn't.

Don's proposal is to remove 'in' contract widening completely. That does not
make a lot of sense to me.
