Comment:

Yes, Records/DeclaredOverloadedRecordFields/DotPostfix is orthogonal to type directed name resolution, although spj's original TDNR proposal included both.

This ticked was originally about TDNR, then wondered into DotPostfix as an add-on to ORF. As the dot notation has attracted a fair amount of controversy, and ORF only gives TDNR for records, I've brought up a proposal for TDNR over any function but without syntax changes.
