Theorem bj-brresdm

Description: If two classes are related by a restricted binary relation, then the first class is an element of the restricting class. See also brres and brrelex1 .

Remark: there are many pairs like bj-opelresdm / bj-brresdm , where one uses membership of ordered pairs and the other, related classes (for instance, bj-opelresdm / brrelex12 or the opelopabg / brabg family). They are straightforwardly equivalent by df-br . The latter is indeed a very direct definition, introducing a "shorthand", and barely necessary, were it not for the frequency of the expression A R B . Therefore, in the spirit of "definitions are here to be used", most theorems, apart from the most elementary ones, should only have the "br" version, not the "opel" one.
