There's no point giving the compiler a clue, as the compiler already knows what you are trying to do. And it's currently forbidden. The reason is that there are too many corner cases to let 'state LIST' be something that is intuitive all the time.

state $scalar is all that is allowed. Perhaps the best you can do is:

state $record = empty_record;
