Excellent change! I found two bugs of record confusion in YXA right 
away.
One in a test case but one in actual code (covered by a test case, 
fortunately!).

The first one was my records request and response,

  #request{method, uri, header, body} and
  #response{method, uri, header, body}

the header element was used but with the wrong record type. Went 
unnoticed because
the header element was in the same place in both records.

The second was basically this

  #info{foo, bar} and
  #extended_info{foo, bar, baz}
