Consider an STS consisting of two nodes s1, s2 and an edge s1 -> s2, with
L(s1)={T} and L(s2)={}.  Then closure({s1},{T}) = {s1,s2}.  But ({s1},{T}),
which is less than (closure({s1},{T}),{T}), is also closed.  Which implies
that a closure may not be minimal w.r.t. the closedness.

I started to understand why you called it "closure", and yet I want to know
the exact meaning of the word in this context.  This is partly because when
reading the POPL 2015 paper I couldn't understand the STS construction..
