  Intuition: We find an \<open>R \<union> S\<close>-min element of a nonempty subset \<open>A\<close> by case distinction.
  \<^enum> There is a step \<open>a \<midarrow>R\<rightarrow> b\<close> with \<open>a, b \<in> A\<close>.
    Pick an \<open>R\<close>-min element \<open>z\<close> of the (nonempty) set \<open>{a\<in>A | \<exists>b\<in>A. a \<midarrow>R\<rightarrow> b}\<close>.
    By definition, there is \<open>z' \<in> A\<close> s.t. \<open>z \<midarrow>R\<rightarrow> z'\<close>. Because \<open>z\<close> is \<open>R\<close>-min in the
    subset, \<open>z'\<close> must be \<open>R\<close>-min in \<open>A\<close>. Because \<open>z'\<close> has an \<open>R\<close>-predecessor, it cannot
    have an \<open>S\<close>-successor and is thus \<open>S\<close>-min in \<open>A\<close> as well.
  \<^enum> There is no such step.
    Pick an \<open>S\<close>-min element of \<open>A\<close>. In this case it must be an \<open>R\<close>-min
