We show the stepped-pressure equilibria that are obtained from a
generalization of Taylor relaxation known as multi-region, relaxed MHD (MRXMHD)
are also generalizations of ideal MHD. We show this by proving that as the
number of plasma regions becomes infinite, MRXMHD reduces to ideal MHD.
Numerical convergence studies demonstrating this limit are presented.
