My memory is pretty bad on the history.

I expect that I started out with the syntax in Spivey's "The 
Z Notation" (It was the only game in town at the time).
But then you might expect to see "gen actuals" and 
"renaming!" there.

To unravel it one would need to look at the very early 
editions of the specification.
Do the SCCS files have the full history in them?
