No, that wasn't what I meant. I meant that you don't need a type
sequence in order to work on the types in a value sequence. The value
sequence itself should behave like a type sequence.

This is in contradiction to my interpretation of the original statement,
which was that the MPL needs a random-access type sequence because we
need random access to the types of a value sequence.

Yes, that was fairly confusing, sorry.
