Default Re: Cross validation estimate

It need not be true in general and it is challenging to describe simple conditions for which one can prove it to be true.

And also by "challenging to prove", does it mean that no one has proved it yet or is it just too complicated to present in the book?

Thank you very much.

(Anyway, I've just noticed that the dot "." before the sentence I quoted on the page 141 was not properly put.)
