It would be nice to be able to have unnamed fields in a record to save having to invent names for everything, e.g.

data Foo = Foo { _ :: Int, _ :: Char, pos :: Position }
         | Bar { _ :: String,         pos :: Position }

The Show instance would have to use the non-record syntax, but other than that I don't think there would be any problems.
