That might be an interesting option for 'unfused_typed'.
But the concern is not about a particular feature of 'unfused_type' --
error handling might have gotten worse for all 'unfused_*' adapters.

BTW: There is no default initialization of Sequence elements. If there
are less arguments you get a shorter Sequence.
Enabling the resulting function (object) to pose as a function with
default arguments and allowing argument patterns (such as: (key, value,
default)) were the reasons for making that adapter implicitly variadic.
Also, all other 'unfused_*' adapters are inherently variadic (for which
this property is pretty much self-evident).
