(** {b Descr} : This function adds a row variable to a record or a sum
containing only one case. If the type is a typename, it unfolds it to apply
this process.
This function process the type in surface, i.e. it does not open the
records nested in the type sub-terms. This means that if the type is not
a record of a sum with only one case, this function generates an error.
This function is used to implements typechecking of the @openrecord
