what about moving the record system to an addendum?

Well, without a replacement, it seems odd to remove it. Also, Haskell
currently doesn't _have_ a record syntax (I think it was always a
misnomer to call it that) it has 'labeled fields'. None of the proposed
record syntaxes fit the same niche as labeled fields so I don't see them
going away even if a record syntax is added to haskell in the future. I
would like to see the simple modifications to the record syntax listed
on this page though


and a reworking of the standard to not refer to the current system as a
'record syntax' but rather a 'labeled fields' syntax.
