Hi, Herman, this is nicely concise.
I would personally not call it an inconsistency of a strong form of classical
logic, but rather an internal proof of undecidability of the underlying logic.
But it ought definitely be pointed out to users who may be tempted to mix
classical reasoning with constructive operators in higher order logic, with
catastrophic effects indeed.
