Sorry, I was wrong here.  I0 does not require that one has access to j as
a predicate from within L(V_{\lambda+1}).  Indeed, ZF+Reinhardt implies

However, I think Reinhardt cardinals would still be considered large
cardinals by set theorists.  What else would you call them?  It would be
interesting to see a hypothesis of an entirely different flavor that
implies the consistency of the choiceless large cardinals.
