> In many scripting languages, the standard map datastructure does not support arbitrary
keys, but rather only strings and possibly numeric values.  To simplify integration with such
languages, Avro should restrict map keys to be strings.  Thus, effectively, maps would become
dynamic records, records whose field names vary from instance to instance.
