This wording does not work for Schemes with single inheritance record types, which are a fairly simple (and very useful) extension of record types.  For example in Gambit you can define the record type bar as a subtype of the foo type like this:

  > (define-type foo
      extender: define-type-of-foo
      id: foo-B0C62CC8-F4E9-4C45-B28D-08372CE45BCE
      x)

      y)

  #<bar #3 x: 22 y: 33>

  (#f #t)

Note that they are both non-generative types, but even though they have different ids they are not disjoint (the object b is both a foo and a bar).

The practical implication of your proposed wording is that it would not be allowed to create a non-generative subtype of the fxmapping type.
