Maybe I should have said that R defines a relation the possible values of which include tuples that are in the domain of B. So maybe I was mixing up values with types and instead of talking about R{A int, B typeof R}, I was confusing it with something like R{A int, B typeof R} along with a constraint such as B REFERENCES R.
