"types" or "records"?

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 76 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 76 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

Some of the terminology in this SRFI seems inconsistent. The procedural layer talks about constructing "record type descriptors" (i.e., make-record-type-descriptor), but the syntactic layers talk about defining types (i.e., define-type and type-descriptor).

The very title of the SRFI suggests that it's about records. Shouldn't the syntactic layer be consistent with that?
