Hi Lars,

>   :: 'b

I guess the for-parameters are not dealt as expected by interpret.
Maybe this is a co-phenomenon of the following warning from isar-ref:

> interpret expr where eqns interprets expr in the proof context and is
> otherwise similar to interpretation in local theories. Note that rewrite
> rules given to interpret after the where keyword should be explicitly
