    Description

      A number of issues and/or concerns have been raised recently relating
      to the reflective support for records. These arose when finalizing and
      completing the runtime CSR. Taken together they seem to lead back to a
      few small, but significant, omissions in the spec that would be good to
      tighten up. It is important that it be possible to reflectively reason
      about record classes in a way that is unambiguous and provides
      certainty that the record class is well-formed.

      For a class to be a record class, then:

        1) It's direct superclass must be java.lang.Record, and
        2) It must have a Record attribute.

      The entry point to the reflective API for records is the two methods:
      Class::isRecord and Class::getRecordComponents.
