In the AFP we have four separate copies of the definition

definition list :: "nat \<Rightarrow> 'a set \<Rightarrow> 'a list set"
where
"list n A = {xs. size xs = n \<and> set xs \<subseteq> A}"

Interestingly, the exact same concept is coded in three different ways in the four definitions. We also have a number of theorems in the repository referring to this concept:

finite_lists_length_eq
set_n_lists
card_lists_length_eq
lists_length_Suc_eq

And we have three copies of Listn.thy in MicroJava and JinjaThreads. Could maybe some fragment of this, if not the whole thing, be moved into Library?

Definitely, go ahead! (I obviously prefer the def you quoted above)

The naming of the lemmas suggests that this function should be named
lists, not list.

The motivation for "list" what is that in should mimic the name of the type
constructor "list". On the level of types of rules omitted, e.g. nat not nats.

However I think these days I would also use the plural of the term level.
