It might be possible to further weaken that to the following
Set({}) & [Set(x) & y=<H(x) > Set(y)]
I think this can interpret MK over the subdomain of well founded sets, thus proving the consistency of ZFC relative to it.
Also I do think that if we redefine =< to the following modified subset relation, then the resulting theory would prove the consistency of ZC relative to it.
Def.) y =< x iff Exist z (for all m. m in y & ~m in x > m=z)
