You need to weaken something somewhere ...

A good explanation of what is going on from a categorical perspective is given in Melliès and Tabareau, Resource modalities in tensor logic (2010). A ...

For me, what is going on is reasonably standard: You have $c$ with free variables $(x_i : \tau_i)_i$, and you replace it with $c[t_i/x_i]$ with the $(t_i)_i$ at types $(\tau_i)_i$; this is a standard cut/substitution. The replacement is done along a variable $k$ that is defined somewhere and used elsewhere; this sort of "action at a distance" is ...
