Note also that this relates primarily to the way induction is presented in
CIC, via a scheme rather than a finite collection of inductive types. If
you are only concerned with logical systems up to biinterpretability, then
CIC is finitely axiomatizable, so this is at best a concern with CIC as
traditionally construed and implemented in proof assistants, rather than
CIC the logical system.
