For clarity, these sequences of records should be lists (with each
item being a tuple containing the record fields), not tuples.

A tuple implies a meaning associated with each position in the
sequence (like a record with a positional meaning for each field), a
list implies the opposite (a sequence with order but not meaning
associated with each position).
