  1. the change made removes the conditions (associativity and identities of morphisms) that are inherited directly from those of a category.

    Naman, I don’t see what is gained by your edit (here):

    All of the properties listed there follow from the previous discussion, the point is, as it says, to make it “very explicit”.

    The lines you removed serve that purpose. At the very least, absolutely no harm is done by keeping them.

    I think they should be reinstantiated.

    Naman: the conditions are not inherited from the definition of a functor or a category, so I reinstantiated them. They are exactly the conditions for a monoidal category to be strict. Like it was after your edit, the explicit definition was no longer correct.

  4. Added to the existing section on representable multicategories that maps between underlying representable multicategories correspond to lax monoidal functors.

    Added that the category of monoidal categories and monoidal functors is equivalent to the category representable colored PROs.
