I'm not quite sure... Would you explain it more, please?

And the most confusing part is, we already have this implementation for
RELAX, and I can't see what is special about TREX, regarding this. All I
did was just demonstrating TREX-version of type-assignment algorithm for

I'm completely at a loss, at this point.
