I think it will be 

REnv = (Func U Jump) -> RCont

because you want the rule:

R[let fun k <xi>* = e in e']p = R[e]p' V Gamma
 where Gamma = R[e']p and p' = Gamma(k)

I want <=l to the partial order imposed on RCont when interpreted relative
to the label l.  The partial order on REnv is "pointwise" in the sense
that it's defined as:

Gamma1 <= Gamma2
forall l in Label. Gamma1(l) <=l Gamma2(l)
                   bot <=l l' <=l l   forall l' in Label

So, (Func U Jump U {bot}, <=l) corresponds to the squashed powerset
domain, with bot for {}, l' for {l'} (where l' <> l), and l for everything
