In the comment #43 we had

>> It seems that Matthew is saying that it is not necessary that a monoidal preorder has the monoidal product distributing over joins for it to be closed.
> No, I didn't mean that.

Sorry, I should have quoted what I was referring to. In comment #21 you had

> **Lemma.** If \\(\mathcal{V}\\) is monoidal partial order which also an [upper semilattice]( with arbitrary joins, then it is closed.

And afterwards you said

> The above argument doesn't need \\(\otimes\\) to distribute over \\(\bigvee\\) as far as I can tell. I believe it is necessary to define profunctor composition, however.
