Ahh, I see now, thanks.

But really, I don't find a function that accepts both {Tab,Key} and 
Record either, so this is probably not the real reason.

Anyways, why do we have functions of arity 1 accepting {Tab,Key} instead 
of functions with arity 2?
The functions with arity 1 accepting {Tab,Key} (read, dirty_read, wread, 
dirty_delete, delete) don't exist with arity 2, (except for dirty_read, 
which accepts Tab and Key).
