### A (too?) simple notion of “closed multicategory”

Suppose I define a multicategory $M=(Ob(M),Hom_M)$ to be simply closed if
for every sequence $S=(b_1,\ldots,b_n;x)$ of $n+1$ objects in $M$, we provide an object $Exp(S)\in Ob(M)$, and
for every ...

Take a Cartesian (or monoidal) closed category; define Reader monad for a given object $E$ as
$X \mapsto X^E$; and take a strong monad $M$ (strong means preserves product or tensor product).
Now the ...
